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: Railroad Service and Compensation Reports/System Access Application; OMB 3220–0008. Under Section 9 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA) and Section 6 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA) the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) maintains for each railroad employee, a record of compensation paid to that employee by all railroad employers for whom the employee worked after 1936. This record, which is used by the RRB to determine eligibility for, and amount of, benefits due under the laws it administers, is conclusive as to the amount of compensation paid to an employee during such period(s) covered by the report(s) of the compensation by the employee’s railroad employer(s), except in cases when an employee files a protest pertaining to his or her reported compensation within the statute of limitations cited in Section 9 of the RRA and Section 6 of the RUIA. To enable the RRB to establish and maintain the record of compensation, employers are required to file with the RRB, reports of their employees’ compensation, in such manner and form and at such times as the RRB prescribes. Railroad employers’ reports and responsibilities are prescribed in 20 CFR 209. The RRB currently utilizes Form BA–3, Annual Report of Creditable Compensation, and Form BA–4, Report of Creditable Compensation Adjustments, to secure the required information from railroad employers. Form BA–3 provides the RRB with information regarding annual creditable service and compensation for each individual who worked for a railroad employer covered by the RRA and RUIA in a given year. Form BA–4 provides for the adjustment of any previously submitted reports and also the opportunity to provide any service and compensation that had been previously omitted. Requirements specific to Forms BA–3 and BA–4 are prescribed in 20 CFR 209.8 and 209.9. Employers currently have the option of submitting BA–3 and BA–4 reports electronically by CD–ROM, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), secure Email, or online via the RRB’s Employer Reporting System (ERS). The information collection also includes RRB Form BA–12, Application for Employer Reporting Internet Access, and Form G–440, Report Specifications Sheet. Form BA–12 is completed by railroad employers to obtain system PO 00000 Frm 00125 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 78505 access to ERS. Once access is obtained, authorized employees may submit reporting forms online to the RRB. The form determines what degree of access (view/only, data entry/modification or approval/submission) is appropriate for that employee. It is also used to terminate an employee’s access to ERS. Form G–440, Report Specifications Sheet, serves as a certification document for various RRB employer reporting forms (Form BA–3, Form BA–4, Form BA–6a, BA–6, Address Report (OMB 3220–0005), Form BA–9, Report of Separation Allowance or Severance Pay (OMB 3220–0173) and Form BA–11, Report of Gross Earnings (OMB 3220– 0132)). It records the type of medium the report was submitted on, and serves as a summary recapitulation sheet for reports filed on paper. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (79 FR 63652 on October 24, 2014) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). On November 25, 2014, the RRB received comments from the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), strongly supporting the RRB’s continued collection of the data on Forms BA–3 and BA–4 stating ‘‘these forms are our main data source for key components of BEA’s economic statistics.’’ Information Collection Request (ICR) Title: Railroad Service and Compensation Reports/System Access Application. OMB Control Number: 3220–0008. Form(s) submitted: BA–3, BA–3 (Internet), BA–4, BA–4 (Internet), BA– 12 and G–440. Type of request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected public: Private Sector; Businesses or other for-profits. Abstract: Under the Railroad Retirement Act and the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, employers are required to report service and compensation for each employee to update Railroad Retirement Board records for payments of benefits. The collection obtains service and compensation information and information needed to ensure secure system access from employers who voluntarily opt to use the RRB’s Internet-based Employer Reporting System to submit reporting forms and information needed to certify employer reporting transactions. Changes proposed: The RRB proposes to eliminate the paper version of Form BA–3 and to make minor non-burden impacting changes to Forms BA–12. The burden estimate for the ICR is as follows: E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1
