Certain types of initial determinations are subject to reconsideration, which are covered in subpart C of the regulation. Subpart C prescribes rules on who may request reconsideration, when to make a reconsideration request, where to submit the request, the form and content of reconsideration requests, and other matters relating to reconsideration requests. Any person aggrieved by an initial determination of PBGC under § 4003.1(b)(1) (determinations that a plan is covered by section 4021 of ERISA), § 4003.1(b)(2) (determinations concerning premiums, interest, and late payment penalties under section 4007 of ERISA), § 4003.1(b)(3) (determinations concerning voluntary terminations), § 4003.1(b)(4) (determinations concerning allocation of assets under section 4044 of ERISA), or § 4003.1(b)(5) (determinations with respect to penalties under section 4071 of ERISA) may request reconsideration of the initial determination. Most requests for reconsideration have been filed by plan administrators under § 4003.1(b)(2) for waiver of premium penalties and interest and late payment penalties under section 4007 of ERISA. Requests for reconsideration must be in writing, be clearly designated as requests for reconsideration, contain a statement of the grounds for reconsideration and the relief sought, and contain or reference all pertinent information. Requests for reconsideration may be filed by hand, mail, commercial delivery service, or email. PBGC estimates that an average of 184 persons per year will respond to this collection of information. PBGC further estimates that the average annual burden of this collection of information is about one-half hour and $652 per person, with an average total annual burden of approximately 100 hours and about $120,000. The existing collection of information was approved under OMB control number 1212–0063 through September 30, 2019. PBGC intends to request that OMB extend approval of this collection of information for another 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 is soliciting public comments to— • evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Apr 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodologies and assumptions used; • enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 4010 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and PBGC’s regulation on Annual Financial and Actuarial Information Reporting (29 CFR part 4010) require each member of a controlled group to submit financial and actuarial information to PBGC under certain circumstances. Section 4010 specifies that each controlled group member must provide PBGC with certain financial information, including audited (if available) or (if not) unaudited financial statements. Section 4010 also specifies that the controlled group must provide PBGC with certain actuarial information necessary to determine the liabilities and assets for all PBGC-covered plans. PBGC’s 4010 regulation specifies the items of identifying, financial, and actuarial information that filers must submit under section 4010, through PBGC’s secure e-4010 web-based application. Computer-assisted analysis of this information helps PBGC to anticipate possible major demands on the pension insurance system and to focus PBGC resources on situations that pose the greatest risks to that system. Because other sources of information are usually not as current as the section 4010 information and do not reflect a plan’s termination liability, the section 4010 filing plays a major role in PBGC’s ability to protect participant and premium-payer interests. The existing collection of information was approved under OMB control number 1212–0049 (expires July 31, 2019). On February 19, 2019, PBGC published in the Federal Register (at 84 FR 4863) a notice informing the public of its intent to request an extension of this collection of information for E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 82 / Monday, April 29, 2019 / Notices another three years.

Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collections of information to determine (1) the practical utility of the collections; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collections; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of the publication date. 1. Title and purpose of information collection: Employer Reporting; 3220– 0005. Under Section 9 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), and Section 6 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), railroad employers are required to submit reports of employee service and compensation to the RRB as needed for administering the RRA and RUIA. To pay benefits due on a deceased employee’s earnings records or determine entitlement to, and amount of annuity applied for, it is necessary at times to obtain from railroad employers current (lag) service and compensation not yet reported to the RRB through the annual reporting process. The reporting requirements are specified in 20 CFR 209.6 and 209.7. The RRB currently utilizes the following forms to collect information to obtain the required lag service and related information from railroad employers: Form AA–12, Notice of Death and Request for Service Needed for Eligibility, Form G–88A.1 (or its internet equivalent, Form G–88A.1 (internet)), Request for Verification of Date Last Worked, and Form G–88A.2 (or its internet equivalent, Form G– 88A.2 (internet)), Notice of Retirement and Request for Service Needed for Eligibility.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 4010 of the Employee Retirement 
Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and PBGC's regulation on Annual 
Financial and Actuarial Information Reporting (29 CFR part 4010) 
require each member of a controlled group to submit financial and 
actuarial information to PBGC under certain circumstances. Section 4010 
specifies that each controlled group member must provide PBGC with 
certain financial information, including audited (if available) or (if 
not) unaudited financial statements. Section 4010 also specifies that 
the controlled group must provide PBGC with certain actuarial 
information necessary to determine the liabilities and assets for all 
PBGC-covered plans.
    PBGC's 4010 regulation specifies the items of identifying, 
financial, and actuarial information that filers must submit under 
section 4010, through PBGC's secure e-4010 web-based application. 
Computer-assisted analysis of this information helps PBGC to anticipate 
possible major demands on the pension insurance system and to focus 
PBGC resources on situations that pose the greatest risks to that 
system. Because other sources of information are usually not as current

    The existing collection of information was approved under OMB 
control number 1212-0049 (expires July 31, 2019). On February 19, 2019, 
PBGC published in the Federal Register (at 84 FR 4863) a notice 
informing the public of its intent to request an extension of this 
collection of information for

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 560 controlled groups will file each year. The 
total estimated annual burden of the information collection would be 
approximately 532 hours and $12,871,000.
