FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michel Smyth by telephone at 202–693– 4129, TTY 202–693–8064, (these are not toll-free numbers) or sending an email to DOL_PRA_PUBLIC@dol.gov. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Notice of Final Payment or Suspension of Compensation Benefits information collection. The Notice of Final Payment or Suspension of Compensation Benefits, Form LS–208, is used by insurance carriers and selfinsured employers to report the payment of benefits under the Longshore and Harbors Workers Compensation Act. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the Department has made cosmetic changes to the Form LS– 208, such as expanding the size and types of boxes used for responding. These changes are not expected to change the public burden. Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act section 914(g) authorizes this collection. See 33 U.S.C. 914(g). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Feb 26, 2015 Jkt 235001 law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1240–0041. The current approval is scheduled to expire on February 28, 2015; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on December 1, 2014 (79 FR 71130). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240–0041. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Agency: DOL–OWCP. Title of Collection: Notice of Final Payment or Suspension of Compensation Benefits. OMB Control Number: 1240–0041. Affected Public: Private Sector— Businesses or other for-profits.

A response from the FCCC that indicates ‘‘no DD214 on file’’ will prompt the state to start the affidavit process and to use the attached schedule to calculate the Federal military wages for an unemployment insurance or UCX monetary determination. The schedule applies to UCX ‘‘first claims’’ filed beginning with the first day of the first week that begins on or after January 1, 2015, pursuant to the UCX program regulations (see 20 CFR 614.12(c)). States must continue to use the existing schedule for UCX ‘‘first claims’’ filed before the effective date of the revised schedule.

Notice To Ensure State Workforce Agencies Are Aware of the 
Revised Schedule of Remuneration for the Unemployment Compensation for 
Ex-Servicemembers (UCX) Program That Reflects the Military Pay Increase 
Effective January 1, 2015

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Each year, the Department of Defense issues a Schedule of 
Remuneration that may be used by states, as needed, for UCX purposes. 
States must use the schedule to determine Federal military wages for 
UCX ``first claims'' only when the Federal Claims Control Center (FCCC) 
responds to a request for information indicating that there is no Copy 
5 of the Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 
214) for an individual under the social security number provided. A 
response from the FCCC that indicates ``no DD214 on file'' will prompt 
the state to start the affidavit process and to use the attached 
schedule to calculate the Federal military wages for an unemployment 
insurance or UCX monetary determination.
    The schedule applies to UCX ``first claims'' filed beginning with 
the first day of the first week that begins on or after January 1, 
2015, pursuant to the UCX program regulations (see 20 CFR 614.12(c)). 
States must continue to use the existing schedule for UCX ``first 
claims'' filed before the effective date of the revised schedule.

Portia Wu,
Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training, Labor.
