SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection is needed to pay participants and beneficiaries who may be entitled to pension benefits from plans that have terminated. It consists of information participants and beneficiaries are asked to provide in connection with an application for benefits. In addition, in some instances, PBGC requests individuals to provide identifying information so that it may determine whether the individuals may be entitled to benefits. All requested information is needed so that PBGC may determine benefit entitlements and make appropriate payments. This information collection includes My Pension Benefit Account (MyPBA), an application on PBGC’s website, http://www.pbgc.gov, through which plan participants and beneficiaries may conduct electronic transactions with PBGC, including applying for pension benefits, designating a beneficiary, electing monthly payments, electing to withhold income tax from periodic payments, changing contact information, and applying for electronic direct deposit. PBGC is proposing to revise one form in this collection, the Power of Attorney Form (Form 715). The proposed revision would include: • Features previously unavailable— granting a durable power of attorney (DPOA) in addition to a nondurable power of attorney (NDPOA), and allowing a principal to name up to three agents to act on her behalf with PBGC (and to designate whether the agents have independent or joint authority), whereas the current form only has room for one agent to be named; • Features that would protect the principal—heightened requirements for granting authority and for executing the document (i.e., the principal’s signature must be witnessed and notarized, and witnesses must meet certain criteria); and • A ‘‘Notice to the Principal,’’ to alert the principal about what powers she is granting to a designated agent, and an ‘‘Agent’s Acknowledgement’’ to inform the agent about her duties and liabilities with respect to handling the principal’s affairs. PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39479 PBGC believes these revisions provide greater flexibility and greater protections against fraud for customers using the Form 715. Customers are not required to use this form and can use other DPOAs or NDPOAs that comply with applicable state laws. The existing collection of information was approved under OMB control number 1212–0055 (expires March 31, 2019). On May 16, 2018, PBGC published in the Federal Register (at 83 FR 22715) a notice informing the public of its intent to request an extension of this collection of information, as modified. No comments were received. PBGC is requesting that OMB extend approval of the collection (with modifications to the Form 715) for three years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. PBGC estimates that it will receive 175,397 benefit applications and information forms annually. The total annual burden associated with this collection of information is estimated to be 108,440 hours (approximately one hour for benefit applications and 30 minutes for information forms) and an estimated $56,711, which is the total average maximum cost of notary services for spousal consents on benefit applications and for the Form 715. PBGC estimates that 710 out of the 175,397 applications and forms submitted annually are Form 715, and that the total annual burden to complete the Form 715 would be approximately 355 hours and $2,485.

Rule 12b–1 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (17 CFR 270.12b– 1) permits a registered open-end investment company (‘‘fund’’) to bear expenses associated with the distribution of its shares, provided that the fund complies with certain requirements, including, among other things, that it adopt a written plan (‘‘rule 12b–1 plan’’) and that it preserves in writing any agreements relating to the rule 12b–1 plan. The rule in part requires that (i) the adoption or material amendment of a rule 12b–1 plan be approved by the fund’s directors, including its independent directors, and, in certain circumstances, its shareholders; (ii) the board review quarterly reports of amounts spent under the rule 12b–1 plan; and (iii) the board, including the independent directors, consider continuation of the rule 12b–1 plan and any related agreements at least annually. Rule 12b– 1 also requires funds relying on the rule to preserve for six years, the first two years in an easily accessible place, copies of the rule 12b–1 plan and any related agreements and reports, as well as minutes of board meetings that describe the factors considered and the basis for adopting or continuing a rule 12b–1 plan. Rule 12b–1 also prohibits funds from paying for distribution of fund shares with brokerage commissions on their portfolio transactions. The rule requires funds that use broker-dealers that sell their shares to also execute their portfolio securities transactions, to implement policies and procedures reasonably designed to prevent: (i) The persons responsible for selecting brokerdealers to effect transactions in fund portfolio securities from taking into account broker-dealers’ promotional or sales efforts when making those decisions; and (ii) a fund, its adviser, or its principal underwriter, from entering into any agreement under which the fund directs brokerage transactions or revenue generated by those transactions to a broker-dealer to pay for distribution of the fund’s (or any other fund’s) shares.
