    To obtain the information needed to determine if an annuity is not 
payable to an applicant because of earnings in excess of prescribed 
amounts, the RRB uses a series of basic application forms used to

and future earnings. To determine information needed for determining 
reductions in, or non-payment of, annuities currently being paid to 
annuitants, the RRB primarily relies on earnings information received 
from the Social Security Administration under the terms of a computer 
matching agreements.
    The RRB utilizes Form G-19-F, Earnings Information Request, to 
obtain earnings information that either had not been previously

program integrity, the RRB proposes to revise Form G-19-F to expand a 
current item that requests information about the annuitant's employer 
to include the employer's identification number (EID). Other minor non-
