Submission for Review: RI 30-2, Annuitant's Report of Earned Income, 3206-0034, 43190-43191 [2019-17908]

Download as PDF jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 43190 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 161 / Tuesday, August 20, 2019 / Notices report do not provide accurate information on line 14 of Schedule R. The current instructions for line 14 require multiemployer plans to count inactive participants using the last contributing employer counting method. Under the last contributing employer method, a plan counts only those participants whose last contributing employer withdrew from the plan by the beginning of the relevant plan year for which the Form 5500 relates. The plan does not count any participants whose employers had not withdrawn from the plan, even if, in the relevant year, no contributions were made by the employer on behalf of those participants. PBGC is proposing to modify Schedule R to provide multiemployer plans with a choice of the last contributing employer counting method and two proposed counting methods: The alternative method and the approximation method. PBGC anticipates that providing plans with three alternative counting methods will allow each plan to choose the counting method that will be most accurate and least burdensome for the plan to count its inactive participants. Under the first proposed counting method, the alternative method, a plan would count only those participants whose last contributing employer and all prior contributing employers had withdrawn from the plan by the beginning of the relevant plan year. Under this method, the plan would review the list of all contributing employers (employers that had not withdrawn from the plan by the beginning of the relevant plan year), and include on Line 14 only those inactive participants who had no covered service with any of these employers. Under the second proposed counting method, the reasonable approximation method, a plan that is unable to use the other two methods would make a reasonable, good faith effort to count inactive participants to satisfy the requirements of section 103(f)(2)(C) of ERISA. The plan would be required to provide an attachment that explains the plan’s approximation method, including a description of the data and a breakdown describing the number of clearly identified inactive participants and the number of estimated inactive participants. PBGC also is proposing that when a plan reports a number on line 14b or 14c that differs from the number it reported for the plan year immediately preceding the plan year, it would be required to submit an attachment with an explanation of the reason for the change. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:49 Aug 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 Both attachments will provide PBGC with data information that it uses in its Pension Insurance Modeling System (PIMS). PBGC’s evaluation of the data submitted in the attachments will allow PBGC to review the integrity of the data. PBGC estimates that the proposed changes would have an offsetting effect and would not change the hour or cost burden for the Schedule R. PBGC estimates that it will receive approximately 24,800 Form 5500 and Form 5500–SF filings per year under this collection of information for the Form 5500 Series. PBGC further estimates that the total annual burden of this collection of information for the Form 5500 Series, attributable to PBGC, will be 1,200 hours and $1,664,000. PBGC is soliciting public comments to— • 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 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.
