SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract and Request for Comments NCUA is extending a previously approved collection of information for 12 CFR 750, Golden Parachute and Indemnification Payments. Part 750 is NCUA’s regulation that prohibits, in certain circumstances, a FICU from making golden parachute and indemnification payments to an IAP. The collection of information requirement applies to troubled FICUs seeking approval to make a severance or golden parachute payment to an IAP. Specifically, § 750.6 requires requests for an FICU to make nondiscriminatory severance plan payments under § 750.1(e)(2)(v) and golden parachute payments permitted by § 750.4 to be submitted in writing to NCUA. In NCUA’s experience, FICU requests to make severance and golden parachute payments within the scope of the rule do not occur often. NCUA estimates that, as of June 30, 2014, there are 6,429 FICUs. Of those, there were 278 problem FICUs with CAMEL 4 or 5 ratings. Of those, 229 FICUs had less than $50 million in total assets and an additional 22 FICUs had less than $100 million in total assets. These smaller FICUs are unlikely to seek NCUA approval to make severance or golden parachute PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 payments because these payments are more typically seen in the executive compensation of larger, more complex FICUs. Of the remaining 27 larger problem FICUs, NCUA anticipates no more than 20 percent would seek NCUA approval to make a severance or golden parachute payment. Accordingly, NCUA estimates that on an annual basis and across all FICUs, only approximately five FICUs will need to solicit NCUA approval in advance of making a severance or golden parachute payment within the scope of the rule and that preparing the request for approval may take four hours. Five FICUs times four hours per respondent equals 20 annual burden hours. In the Federal Register of November 5, 2014 (79 FR 65711), NCUA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. NCUA received no comments during that period. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. NCUA requests that you send your comments on the information collection requirements to the locations listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA’s policy to make all comments available to the public for review. II. Data Title: Golden Parachutes and Indemnification Payments. OMB Number: 3133–0183. Form Number: None.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract and Request for Comments Section 709.4(b) of NCUA’s Rules and Regulations (12 CFR 709) requires the liquidating agent of a credit union placed into involuntary liquidation to publish a notice to creditors instructing creditors to present their claims to the liquidating agent by a specified date. Section 709.6 requires that any party wishing to submit a claim against the liquidated credit union must submit a written proof of claim. In addition, the liquidating agent may require claimants to submit supplemental evidence. The new collection of information requirement is that those creditors making a claim must document their claim and submit it to the liquidating agent by using the proposed Proof of Claim form. The liquidating agent notifies creditors of the need to submit a claim by means of a published notice or letters sent directly to creditors. Generally, one entity would have one claim against a credit union placed in liquidation. The liquidating agent would use the completed Proof of Claim form to determine a claim has been made against a liquidated credit union and evaluate the claim for payment. On occasion, the liquidating agent may require supplemental evidence from the claimant. NCUA estimates the liquidating agent will request ten percent (10%) of the claimants to furnish additional evidence to support the claim. In the Federal Register of June 17, 2014 (79 FR34555), NCUA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. NCUA received no comments. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract and Request for Comments

    NCUA is extending a previously approved collection of information 
for 12 CFR 750, Golden Parachute and Indemnification Payments. Part 750 
is NCUA's regulation that prohibits, in certain circumstances, a FICU 
from making golden parachute and indemnification payments to an IAP. 
The collection of information requirement applies to troubled FICUs 
seeking approval to make a severance or golden parachute payment to an 
IAP. Specifically, Sec.  750.6 requires requests for an FICU to make 
nondiscriminatory severance plan payments under Sec.  750.1(e)(2)(v) 
and golden parachute payments permitted by Sec.  750.4 to be submitted 
in writing to NCUA.
    In NCUA's experience, FICU requests to make severance and golden 
parachute payments within the scope of the rule do not occur often. 
NCUA estimates that, as of June 30, 2014, there are 6,429 FICUs. Of 
those, there were 278 problem FICUs with CAMEL 4 or 5 ratings. Of 
those, 229 FICUs had less than $50 million in total assets and an 
additional 22 FICUs had less than $100 million in total assets. These 
smaller FICUs are unlikely to seek NCUA approval to make severance or 
golden parachute payments because these payments are more typically 
seen in the executive compensation of larger, more complex FICUs. Of 
the remaining 27 larger problem FICUs, NCUA anticipates no more than 20 
percent would seek NCUA approval to make a severance or golden 
parachute payment. Accordingly, NCUA estimates that on an annual basis 
and across all FICUs, only approximately five FICUs will need to 
solicit NCUA approval in advance of making a severance or golden 
parachute payment within the scope of the rule and that preparing the 
request for approval may take four hours. Five FICUs times four hours 
per respondent equals 20 annual burden hours.
    In the Federal Register of November 5, 2014 (79 FR 65711), NCUA 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
collection of information. NCUA received no comments during that 
period.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number.
    NCUA requests that you send your comments on the information 
collection requirements to the locations listed in the addresses 
section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the 
information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including 
whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy 
of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the 
burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as 
through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments 
available to the public for review.
