collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (PRA95). This program helps to ensure that requested data 
can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and 
financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly 
understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents 
can be properly assessed. Currently, the Office of Workers'

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    I. Background: The Certification by School Official information 
collection mandates that in order to qualify as an

eligible dependent for black lung benefits, a child aged 18- to 23-
years must be a full-time student as described in the Black Lung 
Benefits Act, 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq., and regulations 20 CFR 725.209. A 
school official completes a Certification by School Official (Form CM-
981) to verify whether a Black Lung beneficiary's dependent between the 
ages of 18 to 23 years qualifies as a full-time student. Black Lung 
Benefits Act section 426 authorizes this information collection. See 30 
U.S.C. 936.
    This information collection is being classified as an extension of 
an existing collection. 30 U.S.C. 902(g); 20 CFR 725.209, 725.218 
require that all relevant medical evidence be considered before a 
decision can be made regarding a claimant's eligibility for benefits. 
By signing the CM-981 form, the claimant authorizes physicians, 
hospitals, medical facilities or organizations, and the National 
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health to release medical 
information about the miner to the Department of Labor's Office of 
Workers' Compensation Programs. The form contains information required 
by medical institutions and private physicians to enable them to 
release pertinent medical information. This information collection is 
currently approved for use through September 30, 2019.
    II. Review Focus: The Department of Labor is particularly 
interested in comments which:
    * 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 automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.
    III. Current Actions: The Department of Labor seeks approval for 
the extension of this currently-approved information collection in 
order to obtain claimant consent for the release of medical information 
for consideration by the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs in 
their claim for benefits. Failure to gather this information would 
inhibit the adjudication of black lung claims because pertinent medical 
data would not be available for consideration during the processing of 
the claim.
