helps to ensure requested data can be provided in the desired format, 
reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized,

include Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Medicaid, Food Stamps, 
Supplemental Security Income, Unemployment Compensation, and any state 
program approved under Titles I, X, XIV, or XVI of the Social Security 
Act. Under the DEFRA, programs participating must exchange information 
to the extent that it is useful and productive in verifying eligibility 
and benefit amounts to assist the child support program and the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services in verifying eligibility and 
benefit amounts under Titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act.
    On September 27, 2006, ETA issued a final rule regarding the 
Confidentiality and Disclosure of State Unemployment Compensation 
Information. This rule supports and expands upon the requirements of 
the DEFRA and subsequent regulatory changes. The DEFRA authorizes this 
information collection.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information

other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6.
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the

in any comments.
    DOL is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary 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 methodology 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
