ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

Title of Collection: Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program Income Based Repayment (IBR) Plan Request and Alternative Documentation of Income. OMB Control Number: 1845–0102. Type of Review: Revision of an existing collection of information. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 3,159,132. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,042,514. Abstract: This form serves as the means by which borrowers in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) and Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Programs may request an Income-Based or IncomeContingent Repayment (IBR/ICR) Plans if they meet certain statutory and regulatory criteria. The U.S. Department of Education uses the information SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collected on these forms to determine whether a borrower meets the eligibility requirements for the specific IBR/ICR Plan that the borrower has requested. The burden hours associated with this collection is increasing for one reason; namely, that the collection is being combined with all Income-Based or Income-Contingent materials contained in the soon-to-be revised 1845–0014 (Direct Loan Repayment Plan Selection Form) and soon-to-be discontinued 1845–0016 (Direct Loan IBR/ICR Alternative Documentation of Income Form), so that the forms associated with this collection may be used in both the FFEL and Direct Loan Program. However, because the form has been greatly streamlined, there is a significant burden reduction associated with this clearance that is masked by the increased respondent population.

of Income.
    OMB Control Number: 1845-0102.
    Type of Review: Revision of an existing collection of information.

    Abstract: This form serves as the means by which borrowers in the 
William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) and Federal Family 
Education Loan (FFEL) Programs may request an Income-Based or Income-
Contingent Repayment (IBR/ICR) Plans if they meet certain statutory and 
regulatory criteria. The U.S. Department of Education uses the 
information collected on these forms to determine whether a borrower 
meets the eligibility requirements for the specific IBR/ICR Plan that 
the borrower has requested. The burden hours associated with this 
collection is increasing for one reason; namely, that the collection is 
being combined with all Income-Based or Income-Contingent materials 
contained in the soon-to-be revised 1845-0014 (Direct Loan Repayment 
Plan Selection Form) and soon-to-be discontinued 1845-0016 (Direct Loan 
IBR/ICR Alternative Documentation of Income Form), so that the forms 
associated with this collection may be used in both the FFEL and Direct 
Loan Program. However, because the form has been greatly streamlined, 
there is a significant burden reduction associated with this clearance 
that is masked by the increased respondent population.
