    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information 
collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; 
(b) the accuracy of the RRB's estimate of the burden of the collection

Title and Purpose of Information Collection

1. Investigation of Claim for Possible Days of Employment; OMB 3220-
0196

    Under Section 1(k) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act 
(RUIA), unemployment and sickness benefits are not payable for any day 
with respect to which remuneration is payable or accrues to the 
claimant. Also Section 4(a-1) of the RUIA provides that unemployment or 
sickness benefits are not payable for any day the claimant receives the 
same benefits under any law other than the RUIA. Under Railroad 
Retirement Board (RRB) regulations, 20 CFR 322.4(a), a claimant's 
certification or statement on an RRB provided claim form that he or she 
did not work on any day claimed and did not receive income such as 
vacation pay or pay for time lost shall constitute sufficient evidence 
unless there is conflicting evidence. Further, under 20 CFR 322.4(b), 
when there is a question raised as to whether or not remuneration is 
payable or has accrued to a claimant with respect to a claimed day or 
days, investigation shall be made with a view to obtaining information 
sufficient for a finding.
    Form ID-5S(SUP), Report of Cases for Which All Days Were Claimed 
During a Month Credited Per an Adjustment Report, collects information 
about compensation credited to an employee during a period when the 
employee claimed either unemployment or sickness benefits from a 
railroad employer. The request is generated as a result of a computer 
match that compares data which is maintained in the RRB's RUIA Benefit 
Payment file with data maintained in the RRB's records of service. The 
ID-5S(SUP) is generated annually when the computer match indicates that 
an employee(s) of the railroad employer was paid unemployment or 
sickness benefits for every day in one or more months for which 
creditable compensation was adjusted due to the receipt of a report of 
creditable compensation adjustment (RRB Form BA-4, OMB Approved 3220-
0008) from their railroad employer.
    The computer generated Form ID-5S(SUP) includes pertinent 
identifying information, the BA-4 adjustment process date and the 
claimed months in question. Space is provided on the report for the 
employer's use in supplying the information requested in the computer 
generated transmittal letter, Form ID-5S, which accompanies the report. 
The RRB estimates that 80 responses are received annually. Completion 
is voluntary. Completion time is estimated at 10 minutes. One response 
is requested of each respondent. The RRB proposes no changes to Form 
ID-5S(SUP).

2. Designation of Contact Officials; 3220-0200

    Coordination between railroad employers and the RRB is essential to 
properly administer the payment of benefits under the Railroad 
Retirement Act (RRA) and the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act 
(RUIA). In order to enhance timely coordination activity, the RRB 
utilizes Form G-117a, Designation of Contact Officials. Form G-117a is 
used by railroad employers to designate employees who are to act as 
point of contact with the RRB on a variety of RRA and RUIA-related 
matters.
    The RRB estimates that 100 responses are received annually. 
Completion is voluntary. Completion time is estimated at 15 minutes. 
One response is requested from each respondent. The RRB proposes no 
changes to Form G-117a.
