Title and Purpose of Information Collection:

Continuing Disability Report; OMB 3220-0187

    Under Section 2 of the Railroad Retirement Act, an annuity is not 
payable or is reduced for any month in which the annuitant works for a 
railroad or earns more than prescribed dollar amounts from either non-
railroad employment or self-employment. Certain types of work may 
indicate an annuitant's recovery from disability. The provisions 
relating to the reduction or non-payment of annuities by reasons of 
work and an annuitant's recovery from disability for work are 
prescribed in 20 CFR 220.17-220.20. The RRB conducts continuing 
disability reviews (CDR) to determine whether annuitants continue to 
meet the disability requirements of the law. Provisions relating to 
when and how often the RRB conducts CDRs are prescribed in 20 CFR 
220.186.
    Form G-254, Continuing Disability Report, is used by the RRB to 
develop information for CDR determinations, including determinations 
prompted by a report of work, return to railroad service, allegations 
of medical improvement, or routine disability call-up. The RRB proposes 
revision of an existing item to clarify information regarding the 
circumstances surrounding a disabled annuitant's self-employment.
    Form G-254a, Continuing Disability Update Report, is used to help 
identify disability annuitants whose work activity and/or recent 
medical history warrants a more extensive review and thus completion of 
Form G-254. The RRB proposes no changes to Form G-254a.
    One response is requested of each respondent to Form G-254 and G-
254a. Completion is required to retain a benefit.
