Background The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, Public Law 110–181, was enacted on January 28, 2008. Section 1105 of Public Law 110– 181 amended the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) creating a new section 8102a effective upon enactment. This section established a new FECA death gratuity benefit for eligible beneficiaries of Federal employees and Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentality (NAFI) employees who die from injuries incurred in connection with service with an Armed Force in a contingency operation. Section 8102a also permits agencies to authorize retroactive payment of the death gratuity for employees who died on or after October 7, 2001, in service with an Armed Force in the theater of operations of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Form CA–40 requests the information necessary from the employee to accomplish this variance. Form CA–41 provides the means for those named beneficiaries and possible recipients to file claims for those benefits and requests information from such claimants so that OWCP may determine their eligibility for payment. Furthermore, the statute and regulations require agencies to notify OWCP immediately upon the death of a covered employee. CA–42 provides the means to accomplish this notification and requests information necessary to administer any claim for benefits resulting from such a death. This information collection is currently approved for use through May 31, 2010. II. Review Focus The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: E:\FR\FM\28JAN1.SGM 28JAN1
