The Department of Labor (DOL) is submitting the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) sponsored information collection request (ICR) revision titled, ‘‘Death Gratuity,’’ to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval for use in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Public comments on the ICR are invited. DATES: The OMB will consider all written comments that agency receives on or before September 16, 2016. ADDRESSES: A copy of this ICR with applicable supporting documentation; including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency of response, and estimated total burden may be obtained free of charge from the RegInfo.gov Web site at http:// www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAViewICR?ref_nbr=201603–1240–001 (this link will only become active on the day following publication of this notice) or by contacting Michel Smyth by telephone at 202–693–4129, TTY 202– 693–8064, (these are not toll-free mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:39 Aug 16, 2016 This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Death Gratuity Forms. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, Public Law 110– 181, amended the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) by establishing a FECA death gratuity benefit of up to $100,000 for eligible beneficiaries of Federal employees and Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentality employees who die from injuries incurred in connection with service with an Armed Force in a contingency operation. The OWCP associates three forms with this ICR. Form CA–40 requests information necessary from an employee who chooses to name alternate beneficiaries from those otherwise established by law. Form CA– 41 provides the means for those named beneficiaries to file benefit claims. Information provided by such claimants allows the OWCP to determine payment eligibility. The statute and regulations also require Agencies to notify the OWCP immediately upon the death of a covered employee, and Form CA–42 provides the means to accomplish this notification. This latter form requests information necessary to administer any claim for benefits resulting from such a death. The Federal Employee Compensation Act authorizes this information collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8145, 8149. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of changes to the forms. For example, each form has enhanced the statement SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 informing respondents with disabilities how they may obtain assistance in filing a claim. A certification on Form CA–41 has also been clarified and direct deposit information has been added. 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 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 1240–0017. The current approval is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2016; 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 April 13, 2016 (81 FR 21905). 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 1240–0017. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for 
revisions to the Death Gratuity Forms. The National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, Public Law 110-181, amended the 
Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) by establishing a FECA death 
gratuity benefit of up to $100,000 for eligible beneficiaries of 
Federal employees and Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentality employees 
who die from injuries incurred in connection with service with an Armed 
Force in a contingency operation. The OWCP associates three forms with 
this ICR. Form CA-40 requests information necessary from an employee 
who chooses to name alternate beneficiaries from those otherwise 
established by law. Form CA-41 provides the means for those named 
beneficiaries to file benefit claims. Information provided by such 
claimants allows the OWCP to determine payment eligibility. The statute 
and regulations also require Agencies to notify the OWCP immediately 
upon the death of a covered employee, and Form CA-42 provides the means 
to accomplish this notification. This latter form requests information 
necessary to administer any claim for benefits resulting from such a 
death. The Federal Employee Compensation Act authorizes this 
information collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8145, 8149.
    This information collection has been classified as a revision, 
because of changes to the forms. For example, each form has enhanced 
the statement informing respondents with disabilities how they may 
obtain assistance in filing a claim. A certification on Form CA-41 has 
also been clarified and direct deposit information has been added.
    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 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 1240-0017. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on August 31, 2016; 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 April 13, 2016 (81 FR 21905).
    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 1240-0017. 
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.
