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: Application for 
Survivor Death Benefits; OMB 3220-0031.
    Under Section 6 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), lump-sum 
death benefits are payable to surviving widow(er)s, children, and 
certain other dependents. Lump-sum death benefits are payable after the 
death of a railroad employee only if there are no qualified survivors 
of the employee immediately eligible for annuities. With the exception 
of the residual death benefit, eligibility for survivor benefits 
depends on whether the deceased employee was ``insured'' under the RRA 
at the time of death. If the deceased employee was not insured, 
jurisdiction of any survivor benefits payable is transferred to the 
Social Security Administration and survivor benefits are paid by that 
agency instead of the RRB. The requirements for applying for benefits 
are prescribed in 20 CFR 217, 219, and 234.
    The collection obtains the information required by the RRB to 
determine entitlement to and amount of the survivor death benefits 
applied for. To collect the information, the RRB uses Forms AA-21, 
Application for Lump-Sum Death Payment and Annuities Unpaid at Death; 
AA-21cert, Application Summary and Certification; G-131, Authorization 
of Payment and Release of All Claims to a Death Benefit or Accrued 
Annuity Payment; and G-273a, Funeral Director's Statement of Burial 
Charges. One response is requested of each respondent. Completion is 
required to obtain benefits.
    The RRB proposes the following changes to Forms AA-21, AA-21cert, 
and G-273a:
     Forms AA-21 and AA-21cert--Update the fraud language in 
the Certification statement to make it consistent with other RRB 
applications;
     Form G-273a--Add clarifying language above Item 10 to 
inform a funeral home when to file for a lump-sum death benefit.
    The RRB proposes no changes to Form G-131.
