Start Preamble


Office of Personnel Management (OPM).




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 (OMB) a request for review of a new information collection. RI 20-120, Request for Change to Unreduced Annuity, is a new form designed to collect information OPM needs to comply with the wishes of the retired Federal employee whose marriage has ended. We have always needed this information. In the past, we have considered the information originally provided in the correspondence from the retiree and have made further inquiries as needed. This new form will provide an organized way for the retiree to give us everything at one time.

Comments are particularly invited on:

—Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Office of Personnel Management, and whether it will have practical utility;

—Whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection 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 use of the appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

We estimate we will process 5,000 requests annually from RI 20-120. This form takes an average of 30 minutes per response to complete. The annual burden is estimated to be 2,500 hours.

For copies of this proposal, contact Mary Beth Smith-Toomey on (202) 606-8358, FAX (202) 418-3251 or E-mail to Please include your mailing address with your request.


Comments on this proposal should be received within 60 calendar days from the date of this publication.
