In order for a plan to suspend benefits, it must notify the affected retiree or participant during the first calendar month or payroll period in which the plan withholds payment that benefits are suspended. The notice must include the specific reasons for such suspension, a general description of the plan provisions authorizing the suspension, a copy of the relevant plan provisions, and a statement indicating where the applicable regulations may be PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 found, i.e., 29 CFR 2530.203–3.

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 1210–0048.

2530.203-3 information collection. Employee Retirement Income Security 
Act (ERISA) section 203(a)(3)(B), 29 U.S.C. 1103(a)(3)(B), and its 
implementing regulations govern the circumstances under which a pension 
plan may suspend pension benefit payments to a retiree who returns to 
work or of a participant who continues to work beyond normal retirement 
age. In order for a plan to suspend benefits, it must notify the 
affected retiree or participant during the first calendar month or 
payroll period in which the plan withholds payment that benefits are 
suspended. The notice must include the specific reasons for such 
suspension, a general description of the plan provisions authorizing 
the suspension, a copy of the relevant plan provisions, and a statement 
indicating where the applicable regulations may be found, i.e., 29 CFR 
2530.203-3. The suspension notification must also inform the retiree or 
participant of the plan's procedure for affording a review of the 
suspension of benefits. ERISA section 203 authorizes this information 
collection. See 29 U.S.C. 1103.
    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 1210-0048.
    The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information 
collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing 
requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection 
requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension 
while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about
