Section 2 of the Railroad PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47085 Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), provides unemployment benefits for qualified railroad employees. These benefits are generally payable for each day of unemployment in excess of four during a registration period (normally a period of 14 days). Section 12 of the RUIA provides that the RRB establish, maintain and operate free employment facilities directed toward the reemployment of railroad employees. The procedures for applying for the unemployment benefits and employment service and for registering and claiming the benefits are prescribed in 20 CFR part 325. The RRB utilizes the following forms to collect the information necessary to pay unemployment benefits: Form UI–1 (or its Internet equivalent, Form UI–1 (Internet), Application for Unemployment Benefits and Employment Service, is completed by a claimant for unemployment benefits once in a benefit year, at the time of first registration. Completion of Form UI–1 or UI–1 (Internet) also registers an unemployment claimant for the RRB’s employment service. The RRB proposes no changes to Form UI–1 or UI–1 (Internet). The RRB also utilizes Form UI–3, (or its Internet equivalent Form UI–3 (Internet) Claim for Unemployment Benefits for use in claiming unemployment benefits for days of unemployment in a particular registration period, normally a period of 14 days. The RRB proposes no changes to Form UI–3 or UI–3 (Internet). Completion of Forms UI–1, UI–1 (Internet), UI–3 and UI–3 (Internet) is required to obtain or retain benefits. The number of responses required of each claimant varies, depending on their period of unemployment. The RRB estimates that approximately 9,977 Form UI–1’s (9257 paper and 720 Internet) will be filed annually. Completion time for Form UI–1 and UI– 1 (Internet) is estimated at 10 minutes. The RRB estimates that approximately 74,326 Form UI–3’s (65,035 manual and 9,291 Internet) will be filed annually. Completion time for Form UI–3 and the UI–3 (Internet) is estimated at 6 minutes.
