Rather, they contain additional guidance and clarification on compliance with 10 CFR 50.34(h) and 10 CFR 52.79(a)(41), and may be used by operating license and COL applicants, respectively, in the preparation of their applications. As explained in the applicability section of each ISG, the ISGs do not apply to holders of nuclear power reactor operating licenses under 10 CFR Part 50 or combined licenses under 10 CFR Part 52 as of the effective date of these ISGs and, for ISG–014, the effective date of revision of SRP Section 2.4.13, and for applicants for nuclear power reactor operating licenses under 10 CFR Part 50 or combined licenses under 10 CFR Part 52 that have committed, in applications docketed with the NRC as of the effective date of this ISG and, for ISG– 014, the effective date of revision of SRP Section 2.4.13, to specific guidance in assessing the radiological consequences of a postulated failure of a tank containing radioactive materials. Congressional Review Act Each of these ISGs is a rule as designated in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not found either one to be a major rule as designated in the Congressional Review Act.

Under Section 9 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), and Section 6 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), railroad employers are required to submit reports of employee service and compensation to the RRB as needed for administering the RRA and RUIA. To pay benefits due on a deceased employee’s earnings records or determine entitlement to, and amount of annuity applied for, it is necessary at times to obtain from railroad employers current (lag) service and compensation not yet reported to the RRB through the annual reporting process. The reporting requirements are specified in 20 CFR 209.6 and 209.7. The RRB currently utilizes Form G– 88A.1, Notice of Retirement and Verification of Date Last Worked, Form G–88A.2, Notice of Retirement and Request for Service Needed for Eligibility, and Form AA–12, Notice of Death and Compensation, to obtain the required lag service and related information from railroad employers. Form G–88A.1 is a computer-generated listing sent by the RRB to railroad employers and used for the specific purpose of verifying information previously provided to the RRB regarding the date last worked by an employee. If the information is correct, the employer need not reply. If the information is incorrect, the employer is asked to provide corrected information. Form G–88A.2 is used by the RRB to secure lag service and compensation information when it is needed to determine benefit eligibility. Form AA– 12 obtains a report of lag service and compensation from the last railroad employer of a deceased employee. This report covers the lag period between the date of the latest record of employment processed by the RRB and the date an employee last worked, the date of death or the date the employee may have been entitled to benefits under the Social Security Act. The information is used by the RRB to determine benefits due on the deceased employee’s earnings record. In addition, 20 CFR 209.12(b) requires all railroad employers to furnish the RRB with the home addresses of all employees hired within the last year (new-hires). Form BA–6a, Form BA–6 Address Report, is used by the RRB to obtain home address information of employees from railroad employers who do not have the home address information computerized and who submit the information in a paper format. The form also serves as an instruction sheet to railroad employers who can submit the information electronically by magnetic tape cartridge, CD–ROM, PC diskette, secure Email, or via ERS. Completion of the forms is mandatory. Multiple responses may be filed by respondent. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (77 FR 51833 on August 27, 2012) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.

U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding 
an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB). 
Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. 
Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate 
paperwork burdens.
    The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information 
to determine (1) the practical utility of the collection; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance 
the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the

subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of 
collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the 
RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper 
consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive 
them within 30 days of the publication date.
    Under Section 9 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), and Section 6 
of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), railroad employers 
are required to submit reports of employee service and compensation to 
the RRB as needed for administering the RRA and RUIA. To pay benefits 
due on a deceased employee's earnings records or determine entitlement 
to, and amount of annuity applied for, it is necessary at times to 
obtain from railroad employers current (lag) service and compensation 
not yet reported to the RRB through the annual reporting process. The 
reporting requirements are specified in 20 CFR 209.6 and 209.7.
    The RRB currently utilizes Form G-88A.1, Notice of Retirement and 
Verification of Date Last Worked, Form G-88A.2, Notice of Retirement 
and Request for Service Needed for Eligibility, and Form AA-12, Notice 
of Death and Compensation, to obtain the required lag service and 
related information from railroad employers. Form G-88A.1 is a 
computer-generated listing sent by the RRB to railroad employers and 
used for the specific purpose of verifying information previously 
provided to the RRB regarding the date last worked by an employee. If 
the information is correct, the employer need not reply. If the 
information is incorrect, the employer is asked to provide corrected 
information. Form G-88A.2 is used by the RRB to secure lag service and 
compensation information when it is needed to determine benefit 
eligibility. Form AA-12 obtains a report of lag service and 
compensation from the last railroad employer of a deceased employee. 
This report covers the lag period between the date of the latest record 
of employment processed by the RRB and the date an employee last 
worked, the date of death or the date the employee may have been 
entitled to benefits under the Social Security Act. The information is 
used by the RRB to determine benefits due on the deceased employee's 
earnings record.
    In addition, 20 CFR 209.12(b) requires all railroad employers to 
furnish the RRB with the home addresses of all employees hired within 
the last year (new-hires). Form BA-6a, Form BA-6 Address Report, is 
used by the RRB to obtain home address information of employees from 
railroad employers who do not have the home address information 
computerized and who submit the information in a paper format. The form 
also serves as an instruction sheet to railroad employers who can 
submit the information electronically by magnetic tape cartridge, CD-
ROM, PC diskette, secure Email, or via ERS.
    Completion of the forms is mandatory. Multiple responses may be 
filed by respondent.
    Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the 
initial 60-day notice (77 FR 51833 on August 27, 2012) required by 44 
U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.
