collections.
    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: Application to Act as 
Representative Payee; OMB 3220-0052.
    Under Section 12 of the Railroad Retirement Act, the Railroad 
Retirement Board (RRB) may pay benefits to a representative payee when 
an employee, spouse or survivor annuitant is incompetent or is a minor. 
A representative payee may be a court-appointed guardian, a statutory 
conservator or an individual selected by the RRB. The procedures 
pertaining to the appointment and responsibilities of a representative 
payee are prescribed in 20 CFR part 266.
    The forms furnished by the RRB to apply for representative payee 
status, and for securing the information needed to support the 
application follow. RRB Form AA-5, Application for Substitution of 
Payee, obtains information needed to determine the selection of a 
representative payee who will serve in the best interest of the 
beneficiary. RRB Form G-478, Statement Regarding Patient's Capability 
to Manage Benefits, obtains information about an annuitant's capability 
to manage their own benefits. The form is completed by the annuitant's 
personal physician or by a medical officer, if the annuitant is in an 
institution. It is not required when a court has appointed an 
individual or institution to manage the annuitant's funds or, in the 
absence of such appointment, when the annuitant is a minor. The RRB 
also provides representative payees with a booklet at the time of their 
appointment. The booklet, RRB Form RB-5, Your Duties as Representative 
Payee-Representative Payee's Record, advises representative payees of 
their responsibilities under 20 CFR 266.9 and provides a means for the 
representative payee to maintain records pertaining to the receipt and 
use of RRB benefits. The booklet is provided for the representative 
payee's convenience. The RRB also accepts records that are kept by 
representative payee's as part of a common business practice.
    Completion is voluntary. One response is requested of each 
respondent. The RRB is proposing non-burden impacting editorial changes 
to Form AA-5 and the RB-5 booklet. No changes are proposed for Form G-
478.
