1. Title and Purpose of Information Collection

Employee's Certification; OMB 3220-0140

    Section 2 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), provides for the 
payment of an annuity to the spouse or divorced spouse of a retired 
railroad employee. For the spouse or divorced spouse to qualify for an 
annuity, the RRB must determine if the employee's current marriage to 
the applicant is valid.
    The requirements for obtaining documentary evidence to determine 
valid marital relationships are prescribed in 20 CFR 219.30 through 
219.35. Section 2(e) of the RRA requires that an employee must 
relinquish all rights to any railroad employer service before a spouse 
annuity can be paid.
    The RRB uses Form G-346 to obtain the information needed to 
determine whether the employee's current marriage is valid. Form G-346 
is completed by the retired employee who is the husband or wife of the 
applicant for a spouse annuity. Completion is required to obtain a 
benefit. One response is requested of each respondent.
    The RRB proposes no changes to Form G-346. The RRB estimates that 
6,900 G-346's will be completed annually at an estimated completion 
time of five minutes per response. Total respondent burden is estimated 
at 575 hours.

sickness or unemployment benefits unpaid at the death of the employee 
and for securing the information needed by the RRB to identify the
