Office of Personnel Management.
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 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 revised information collection. RI20-64, You May Provide a Survivor Annuity for Your Former Spouse, is used by the Civil Service Retirement System to provide information about the amount of annuity payable after a survivor reduction and to offer eligible annuitants an opportunity to make a former spouse survivor annuity election. RI 20-64A, Former Spouse Survivor Annuity Election, is the election form the annuitant uses to make such an election. RI 20-64B, Information on Electing a Survivor Annuity for Your Former Spouse, is a pamphlet that provides important information to retirees under the Civil Service Retirement System who want to provide a survivor annuity for a former spouse.
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 others forms of information technology.
Approximately 30 RI 20-64A forms are completed annually. The form takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The annual estimated burden is 23 hours.
