Evidence of Marital Relationship— Living with Requirements; OMB 3220– 0021. To support an application for a spouse or widow(er)’s annuity under Sections 2(c) or 2(d) of the Railroad Retirement Act, an applicant must submit proof of a valid marriage to a railroad employee. In some cases, the existence of a marital relationship is not formalized by a civil or religious ceremony. In other cases, questions may arise about the legal termination of a prior marriage of an employee, spouse, or widow(er). In these instances, the RRB must secure additional information to resolve questionable marital relationships. The circumstances requiring an applicant to submit documentary evidence of marriage are prescribed in 20 CFR 219.30. In the absence of documentary evidence to support the existence of a valid marriage between a spouse or widow(er) annuity applicant and a railroad employee, the RRB needs to obtain information to determine if a valid marriage existed. The RRB utilizes Forms G–124, Statement of Marital Relationship; G–124a, Statement Regarding Marriage; G–237, Statement Regarding Marital Status; G–238, Statement of Residence; and G–238a, Statement Regarding Divorce or Annulment to secure the needed information.

    1. Evidence of Marital Relationship--Living with Requirements; OMB 
3220-0021. To support an application for a spouse or widow(er)'s 
annuity under Sections 2(c) or 2(d) of the Railroad Retirement Act, an 
applicant must submit proof of a valid marriage to a railroad employee. 
In some cases, the existence of a marital relationship is not 
formalized by a civil or religious ceremony. In other cases, questions 
may arise about the legal termination of a prior marriage of an 
employee, spouse, or widow(er). In these instances, the RRB must secure 
additional information to resolve questionable marital relationships. 
The circumstances requiring an applicant to submit documentary evidence 
of marriage are prescribed in 20 CFR 219.30.
    In the absence of documentary evidence to support the existence of 
a valid marriage between a spouse or widow(er) annuity applicant and a 
railroad employee, the RRB needs to obtain information to determine if 
a valid marriage existed. The RRB utilizes Forms G-124, Statement of 
Marital Relationship; G-124a, Statement Regarding Marriage; G-237, 
Statement Regarding Marital Status; G-238, Statement of Residence; and 
G-238a, Statement Regarding Divorce or Annulment to secure the needed

    Abstract: Under the RRA, to obtain a benefit as a spouse of an 
employee annuitant or as the widow(er) of the deceased employee, 
applicants must submit information to be used in determining if they 
meet the marriage requirements for such benefits. The collection 
obtains information supporting claimed common-law marriage, termination
