Notice Initiating Docket(s) for Recent Postal Service Negotiated Service Agreement Filings, 61659-61660 [2019-24646]

Download as PDF 61659 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 219 / Wednesday, November 13, 2019 / Notices contributing employer counting method and two other proposed counting methods: The alternative method and the reasonable approximation method. PBGC anticipates that providing plans with three available 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 alternative method, a plan would count only those inactive participants whose last contributing employer and all prior contributing employers had withdrawn from the plan by the beginning of the relevant plan year. Under this method, the plan would review the list of all contributing employers (employers that had not withdrawn from the plan by the beginning of the relevant plan year), and include on Line 14 only those inactive participants who had no covered service with any of these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 reasonable approximation method, a plan that is unable to use the other two counting methods must 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 also 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 is also 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 current plan year, it would be required to submit an attachment with an explanation of the reason for the change. Both attachments will provide PBGC with data to be used 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. The existing collection of information was approved under OMB control number 1212–0057 (expires January 31, 2022). On August 20, 2019, PBGC published in the Federal Register (at 84 FR 43189) a notice informing the public of its intent to request an extension of this collection of information, as modified. PBGC received one comment in support of the collection of information. PBGC is requesting that OMB extend approval of the collection, with modifications, 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 approximately 24,800 Form 5500 and Form 5500–SF filings per year under this collection of information. PBGC further estimates that the total annual burden of this collection of information for PBGC will be 1,200 hours and $1,664,000.
