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 of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Title and purpose of information collection: Pension Plan Reports; OMB 3220–0089.

Deadline for the Postal Service to file any responsive pleading. Deadline for notices to intervene (see 39 CFR 3001.111(b)). Deadline for Petitioner’s Form 61 or initial brief in support of petition (see 39 CFR 3001.115(a) and (b)). Deadline for answering brief in support of the Postal Service (see 39 CFR 3001.115(c)). Deadline for reply briefs in response to answering briefs (see 39 CFR 3001.115(d)). Deadline for motions by any party requesting oral argument; the Commission will schedule oral argument only when it is a necessary addition to the written filings (see 39 CFR 3001.116). Expiration of the Commission’s 120-day decisional schedule (see 39 U.S.C. 404(d)(5)). annuity, which is computed according to Section 3(e) of the RRA, can be paid at age 60 if the employee has at least 30 years of creditable railroad service or at age 65 if the employee has 25–29 years of railroad service. In addition to 25 years of service, a ‘‘current connection’’ with the railroad industry is required. Eligibility is further limited to employees who had at least one month of rail service before October 1981 and were awarded regular annuities after June 1966. Further, if an employee’s 65th birthday was prior to September 2, 1981, he or she must not have worked in rail service after certain closing dates (generally the last day of the month following the month in which age 65 is attained). Under Section 2(h)(2) of the RRA, the amount of the supplemental annuity is reduced if the employee receives monthly pension payments, or a lump-sum pension payment, including a distribution from a 401(k) savings plan, from a private pension from a railroad employer, to the extent the payments are based on contributions from that employer. The employee’s own contribution to their pension account does not cause a reduction. A private railroad employer pension is defined in 20 CFR 216.40–216.42. The RRB requires the following information from railroad employers to calculate supplemental annuities: (a) The current status of railroad employer pension plans and whether such plans cause reductions to the supplemental PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 annuity; (b) whether the employee receives monthly payments from a private railroad employer pension, elected to receive a lump-sum in lieu of month pension payments from such a plan, or received a lump-sum distribution from a 401(k) savings plan; (c) the date monthly pension payments began or a lump-sum payment was received; and (d) the amount of the payments attributable to the railroad employer’s contributions. The requirement that railroad employers furnish pension information to the RRB is contained in 20 CFR 209.2. The RRB currently utilizes Forms G– 88p, Employer’s Supplemental Pension Report, G–88r, Request for Information About New or Revised Employer Pension Plan, and G–88r.1, Request for Additional Information about Employer Pension Plan in Case of Change of Employer Status or Termination of Pension Plan, to obtain the necessary information from railroad employers. One response is requested of each respondent. Completion is mandatory. The RRB proposes the following changes to the information collection. Forms G–88p and G–88r will be revised to include information related to the reporting of 401(k) savings plans and to remove items that are no longer relevant. Form G–88r.1 will no longer be utilized. The estimated annual respondent burden is as follows: E:\FR\FM\22SEN1.SGM 22SEN1
