RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD


Proposed Collection; Comment Request

SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 which provides opportunity for 
public comment on new or revised data collections, the Railroad 
Retirement Board (RRB) will publish periodic summaries of proposed data 
collections.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information 
collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; 
(b) the accuracy of the RRB's estimate of the burden of the collection 
of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize 
the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
    Title and purpose of information collection: Vocational Report; OMB 
3220-0141. Section 2 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA) provides for 
payment of disability annuities to qualified employees and widow(ers). 
The establishment of permanent disability for work in the applicant's 
``regular occupation'' or for work in any regular employment is 
prescribed in 20 CFR 220.12 and 220.13 respectively.
    The RRB utilizes Form G-251, Vocational Report, to obtain an 
applicant's work history. This information is used by the RRB to 
determine the effect of a disability on an applicant's ability to work. 
Form G-251 is designed for use with the RRB's disability benefit 
application forms and is provided to all applicants for employee 
disability annuities and to those applicants for a widow(er)'s 
disability annuity who indicate that they have been employed at some 
time.
    Significant changes are proposed to Form G-251 in support of the 
RRB's Disability Program Improvement Project to enhance/improve 
disability case processing and overall program integrity as recommended 
by the RRB's Office of Inspector General and the Government 
Accountability Office.
    Proposed changes to Form G-251 include the consolidation and 
revision of existing items that request information about essential job 
duties performed and any exposure to environmental hazards; the 
expansion of existing items that provide information regarding an 
applicant's physical actions or work activities and the amount of time 
that they expend on such activities during an average 8 hour work day 
to include Balancing, Twisting/Turning, Crawling, Gripping/Holding, 
Foot Control, and Fine Manipulation; and the addition of new items that 
request information regarding any permanent working accommodations an 
employer may have made due to the employee's disability are also 
proposed.
    Other minor changes proposed include revisions to the ``Identifying 
Information'' section to add ``Province'' to the address field for 
applicants who may live outside the U.S. and to provide for an 
additional telephone number. Minor non-burden impacting, editorial and 
formatting changes are also proposed.
    Completion is required to obtain or retain a benefit. One response 
is requested of each respondent.
