Title and purpose of information collection: Financial Disclosure Statement; OMB 3220–0127. Under Section 10 of the Railroad Retirement Act and Section 2(d) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, the RRB may recover overpayments of annuities, pensions, death benefits, unemployment benefits, and sickness benefits that were made erroneously. An overpayment may be waived if the beneficiary was not at fault in causing the overpayment and recovery would cause financial hardship. The regulations for the recovery and waiver of erroneous payments are contained in 20 CFR 255 and CFR 340. The RRB utilizes Form DR–423, Financial Disclosure Statement, to obtain information about the overpaid beneficiary’s income, debts, and expenses if that person indicates that (s)he cannot make restitution for the overpayment. The information is used to determine if the overpayment should be waived as wholly or partially uncollectible. If waiver is denied, the information is used to determine the size and frequency of installment payments. The beneficiary is made aware of the overpayment by letter and is offered a variety of methods for recovery. One response is requested of each respondent. Completion is voluntary. However, failure to provide the requested information may result in a denial of the waiver request. The RRB proposes no changes to Form DR–423.

Section 202(d)(4) of the Social Security Act, as amended by Public Law 104–121, requires as a condition of dependency, that a child receives one-half of his or her support from the stepparent. This dependency impacts upon the entitlement of a spouse or survivor of an employee whose entitlement is based upon having a stepchild of the employee in care, or on an individual seeking a child’s annuity as a stepchild of an employee. Therefore, depending on the employee for at least one-half support is a condition affecting eligibility for increasing an employee or spouse annuity under the social security overall minimum provisions on the basis of the presence of a dependent child, the employee’s natural child in limited situations, adopted children, stepchildren, grandchildren and stepgrandchildren and equitably adopted children. The regulations outlining child support and dependency requirements are prescribed in 20 CFR 222.50–57.

frequency of installment payments. The beneficiary is made aware of the 
overpayment by letter and is offered a variety of methods for recovery.

    3. Title and purpose of information collection: Statement Regarding 
Contributions and Support of Children; OMB 3220-0195.
    Section 2(d)(4) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), provides, in 
part, that a child is deemed dependent if the conditions set forth in 
Section 202(d)(3),(4) and (9) of the Social Security Act are met. 
Section 202(d)(4) of the Social Security Act, as amended by Public Law 
104-121, requires as a condition of dependency, that a child receives 
one-half of his or her support from the stepparent. This dependency 
impacts upon the entitlement of a spouse or survivor of an employee 
whose entitlement is based upon having a stepchild of the employee in 
care, or on an individual seeking a child's annuity as a stepchild of 
an employee. Therefore, depending on the employee for at least one-half 
support is a condition affecting eligibility for increasing an employee 
or spouse annuity under the social security overall minimum provisions 
on the basis of the presence of a dependent child, the employee's 
natural child in limited situations, adopted children, stepchildren, 
grandchildren and step-grandchildren and equitably adopted children. 
The regulations outlining child support and dependency requirements are 
prescribed in 20 CFR 222.50-57.
    In order to correctly determine if an applicant is entitled to a 
child's annuity based on actual dependency, the RRB uses Form G-139, 
Statement Regarding Contributions and Support of Children, to obtain 
financial information needed to make a comparison between the amount of 
support received from the railroad employee and the amount received 
from other sources. Completion is required to obtain a benefit. One 
response is required of each respondent. The RRB proposes no changes to 
Form G-139.
