Abstract: The USVSST Fund was established to provide compensation to certain individuals who were injured as a result of acts of international terrorism by a state sponsor of terrorism. Under the Justice for United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Act (Act), 34 U.S.C. 20144(c), as amended, an eligible claimant is (1) a U.S. person, as defined in 34 U.S.C. 20144(j)(8), with a final judgment issued by a U.S. district court under state or federal law against a state sponsor of terrorism and arising from an act of international terrorism, for which the foreign state was found not immune under provisions of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, codified at 28 U.S.C. 1605A or 1605(a)(7) (as such section was in effect on January 27, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:32 Sep 21, 2022 Jkt 256001 2008); (2) a U.S. person, as defined in 34 U.S.C. 20144(j)(8), who was taken and held hostage from the United States Embassy in Tehran, Iran, during the period beginning November 4, 1979, and ending January 20, 1981; or the spouse and child of that U.S. person at that time, who is also identified as a member of the proposed class in case number 1:00–CV–03110 (EGS) of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia; or (3) the personal representative of a deceased individual in either of those two categories. The information collected from the USVSST Fund’s Application Form will be used to determine whether applicants are eligible for compensation from the USVSST Fund, and if so, the amount of compensation to be awarded. The Application Form consists of parts related to eligibility and compensation. The eligibility parts seek the information required by the Act to determine whether a claimant is eligible for payment from the USVSST Fund, including information related to participation in federal lawsuits against a state sponsor of terrorism under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. The compensation parts seek the information required by the Justice for United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Act, as amended, to determine the amount of compensation for which the claimant is eligible. Specifically, the compensation parts seek information regarding the amount of compensatory damages awarded the claimant in a final judgment as well as any payments from sources other than the USVSST Fund, as defined in 34 U.S.C. 20144(j)(6), that the claimant received, is entitled to receive, or is scheduled to receive, as a result of the act of international terrorism by a state sponsor of terrorism. The Application Form was revised with formatting changes and removal of certain information requests to minimize respondents’ collection burden. There are changes in the revised Application Form, but it contains the same information regarding eligibility and compensation. The USVSST Fund may require an eligible claimant to supplement his or her application by submitting additional forms. These additional supplementary forms include information related to: (1) An acknowledgment and certification by applicants and their attorneys regarding the statutory provision on the amount of attorneys’ fees; (2) an authorization for the USVSST Fund to communicate with individuals identified by an applicant regarding his or her claim; (3) a certification of the personal representative of a deceased PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57925 individual regarding the USVSST Fund award for the decedent’s estate; (4) a claimant’s decision to change an attorney or representative; (5) a hearing request upon receipt of a decision denying the claim in whole or in part; and (6) electronic payment information. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: It is estimated that 700 respondents may complete the Application Form. It is estimated that respondents will complete the paper form or the electronic form in an average of 1.25 hours. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 875 hours.
