Office of Personnel Management.
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget a request for review of an expiring information collection. OPM 1536, Application for Survivor Annuity Under the Civil Service Retirement System, is designed for use by former spouses of Federal employees and annuitants who are applying for a monthly Civil Service Retirement System benefit. The application collects information about whether the applicant is covered by the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and about any court order which awards the applicant retirement benefits.
Comments are particularly invited on: Whether this information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of OPM, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
Approximately 500 OPM Forms 1536 will be completed annually. The form takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The annual burden is 375 hours.

Comments on this proposal should be received on or before February 26, 2001.
