Title and purpose of information collection: Availability for Work; OMB 3220–0164. Under Section 1(k) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, unemployment benefits are not payable for any day for which the claimant is not available for work. Under Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) regulation 20 CFR 327.5, ‘‘available for work’’ is defined as being willing and ready for work. A claimant is ‘‘willing’’ to work if willing to accept and perform for hire such work as is reasonably appropriate to his or her employment circumstances. A claimant is ‘‘ready’’ for work if he or she (1) is in a position to receive notice of work and is willing to accept and perform such work, and (2) is prepared to be present with the customary equipment at the location of such work within the time usually allotted. Under RRB regulation 20 CFR 327.15, a claimant may be requested at any time to show, as evidence of willingness to work, that reasonable efforts are being made to obtain work. In order to determine whether a claimant is; (a) available for work, and (b) willing to work, the RRB utilizes Forms UI–38, UI Claimant’s Report of Efforts to Find Work, and UI–38s, School Attendance and Availability Questionnaire, to obtain information from the claimant and Form ID–8k, Questionnaire— Reinstatement of Discharged or Suspended Employee, from the union representative. One response is completed by each respondent. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (82 FR 42368 on September 7, 2017) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments. Information Collection Request (ICR) Title: Availability for Work. OMB Control Number: 3220–0164. Form(s) submitted: UI–38, UI–38s, and ID–8k. Type of request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected public: Individuals or Households, Non-profit institutions. Abstract: Under Section 1(k) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, unemployment benefits are not payable for any day in which the claimant is not available for work.

Under provisions of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), there are two types of benefit payments that are based on the status of a child being in full-time elementary or secondary school attendance at age 18– 19: (1) A survivor child’s annuity benefit under Section 2(d)(1)(iii) and (2) an increase in the employee retirement annuity under the Special Guaranty E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1 55427 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 223 / Tuesday, November 21, 2017 / Notices computation as prescribed in section 3(f)(2) and 20 CFR 229.

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: Student Beneficiary 
Monitoring; OMB 3220-0123. Under provisions of the Railroad Retirement 
Act (RRA), there are two types of benefit payments that are based on 
the status of a child being in full-time elementary or secondary school 
attendance at age 18-19: (1) A survivor child's annuity benefit under 
Section 2(d)(1)(iii) and (2) an increase in the employee retirement 
annuity under the Special Guaranty

computation as prescribed in section 3(f)(2) and 20 CFR 229.
    The survivor student annuity is usually paid by direct deposit to a 
financial institution either into the student's checking or savings 
account or into a joint bank account with a parent. The requirements 
for eligibility as a student are prescribed in 20 CFR 216.74, and 
include students in independent study and home schooling.
    To help determine if a child is entitled to student benefits, the 
RRB requires evidence of full-time school attendance. This evidence is 
acquired through the RRB's student monitoring program, which utilizes 
the following forms. Form G-315, Student Questionnaire, obtains 
certification of a student's full-time school attendance as well as 
information on the student's marital status, social security benefits, 
and employment, which are needed to determine entitlement or continued 
entitlement to benefits under the RRA. Form G-315A, Statement of School 
Official, is used to obtain, from a school, verification of a student's 
full-time attendance when the student fails to return a monitoring Form 
G-315. Form G-315A.1, School Official's Notice of Cessation of Full-
Time School Attendance, is used by a school to notify the RRB that a 
student has ceased full-time school attendance. The RRB proposes no 
changes to Forms G-315, G-315a, or G-315a.1.
