Title and purpose of information collection: Representative Payee Monitoring; OMB 3220–0151. Under Section 12 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), the RRB may pay annuity benefits to a representative payee when an employee, spouse or survivor annuitant is incompetent or a minor. The RRB is responsible for determining if direct payment to an annuitant or a representative payee would best serve the annuitant’s best interest. The accountability requirements authorizing the RRB to conduct periodic monitoring of representative payees, including a written accounting of benefit payments received, are prescribed in 20 CFR 266.7. The RRB utilizes the following forms to conduct its representative payee monitoring program. Form G–99a, Representative Payee Report, is used to obtain information needed to determine whether the benefit payments certified to the representative payee have been used for the annuitant’s current maintenance and personal needs and whether the representative payee continues to be concerned with the annuitant’s welfare. RRB Form G–99c, Representative Payee Evaluation Report, is used to obtain more detailed information from a representative payee who fails to complete and return Form G–99a, or in situations when the returned Form G– 99a indicates the possible misuse of funds by the representative payee. Form G–99c contains specific questions concerning the representative payee’s VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:00 Jul 15, 2010 Jkt 220001 performance and is used by the RRB to determine whether or not the representative payee should continue in that capacity. Completion of the forms in this collection is required to retain benefits. The RRB proposes no changes to Forms G–99a or G–99c. Approximately 5,400 Form G–99a’s and 420 G–99c’s are completed annually. The completion time for Form G–99a is estimated at 18 minutes per response. The completion time for Form G–99c is estimated at between 24 to 31 minutes per response. Total annual respondent burden hours for the information collection is estimated at 1,802 hours.
