U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding 
three Information Collection Requests (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 collections of information 
to determine (1) the practical utility of the collections; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden of the collections; (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.
    1. Title and purpose of information collection: Employer Service

may be paid in a benefit year. Section 2(c) further provides for 
extended benefits for certain employees and for beginning a benefit 
year early for other employees. The conditions for these actions are 
prescribed in 20 CFR part 302.
    All information about creditable railroad service and compensation 
needed by the RRB to administer Section 2(c) is not always available 
from annual reports filed by railroad employers with the RRB (OMB 3220-
