    Under section 2(e)(3) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), an 
annuity is not payable for any month in which a beneficiary works for a 
railroad. In addition, an annuity is reduced for any month in which the 
beneficiary works for an employer other than a railroad employer and 
earns more than a prescribed amount. Under the 1988 amendments to the 
RRA, the Tier II portion of the regular annuity and any supplemental 
annuity must be reduced by one dollar for each two dollars of Last Pre-
Retirement Non-Railroad Employment (LPE) earnings for each month of 
such service. However, the reduction cannot exceed 50 percent of the 
Tier II and supplemental annuity amount for the month to which such 
deductions apply. The LPE generally refers to an annuitant's last 
employment with a non-railroad person, company, or institution prior to 
retirement, which was performed at the same time as railroad employment 
or after the annuitant stopped railroad employment. The collection 
obtains earnings information needed by the RRB to determine if possible 
reductions in annuities are in order due to LPE.
    The RRB utilizes Form G-19L, Annual Earnings Questionnaire, to 
obtain LPE earnings information from
