Klion, Assistant mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Mar 06, 2015 Jkt 235001 PBGC’s regulations prescribe actuarial valuation methods and assumptions (including interest rate assumptions) to be used in determining the actuarial present value of benefits under single-employer plans that terminate (29 CFR part 4044) and under multiemployer plans that undergo a mass withdrawal of contributing employers (29 CFR part 4281). Each month PBGC publishes the interest rates to be used under those regulations for plans terminating or undergoing mass withdrawal during the next month. The interest rates are intended to reflect current conditions in the annuity markets. To determine these interest rates, PBGC gathers pricing data from insurance companies that are providing annuity contracts to terminating pension plans through a quarterly ‘‘Survey of Nonparticipating Single Premium Group Annuity Rates.’’ The American Council of Life Insurers distributes the survey and provides PBGC with ‘‘blind’’ data (i.e., PBGC is unable to match responses with the companies that submitted them). PBGC also uses the information from the survey in determining the interest rates it uses to value benefits payable to participants and beneficiaries in PBGCtrusteed plans for purposes of PBGC’s financial statements. The survey is directed at insurance companies that have volunteered to participate, most, or all, of which are members of the American Council of Life Insurers. The survey is conducted quarterly and will be sent to approximately 22 insurance companies. Based on experience under the current approval, PBGC estimates that 6 insurance companies will complete and return the survey. PBGC further estimates that the average annual burden of this collection of information is 12 hours and $480. The collection of information has been approved by OMB under control number 1212–0030 through March 31, 2015. PBGC is requesting that OMB extend its approval for another three years. 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.
