Start Preamble

ACTION:

Notice to amend and republish system of records.

SUMMARY:

Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is giving notice that it proposes to republish an amended system of records, OPM/Central-1, due to changes in technology by Retirement Systems Modernization (RSM). This system of records is an integrated application that works from one central database that allows OPM designated employees and contractors to access the records on a need to know basis in accordance with OPM and Federal rules, regulations and safeguard procedures for personally identifiable information. RSM will enhance the system's functionality to enable Federal employees and retirees to access personal and benefits-related information. This notice proposes to amend and republish an existing internal system of records.

DATE:

The changes will be effective April 21, 2008, without further notice unless comments are received that would result in a contrary determination.

ADDRESSES:

Send written comments to Office of Personnel Management, ATTN: Marc Flaster, Chief, Support Group, Center for Retirement and Insurance Services, 1900 E Street, NW., Room 3313, Washington, DC 20415-7900.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice to amend and republish system of records.

SUMMARY:

Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is giving notice that it proposes to republish an amended system of records, OPM/Central-1, due to changes in technology by Retirement Systems Modernization (RSM). RSM is a strategic initiative of OPM to improve quality and timeliness of services to individuals covered by the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS), the Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance Program (FEGLI), and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) by modernizing business practices and technology that support the programs. The RSM program will transform the retirement process, and health and life insurance elections, by devising more efficient and effective business systems to respond to increased customer demand for higher levels of customer service and online self-service tools. This system of records reflects the republishing of the SORN from October 1999, as amended May 2000, inclusion of the prefatory uses as published in 1996 and the addition of two new routine uses.

Categories of individuals covered by the system:

a. Former Federal employees and members of Congress who performed service subject to the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) or Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS).

b. Current Federal employees who have:

1. Performed Federal service subject to the CSRS or FERS other than with their present agency; or

c. Former Federal employees who died subject to or who retired under the CSRS or FERS, or their surviving spouses, and/or children who have received or are receiving CSRS or FERS benefits and/or benefits under the Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Program, or Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP).

d. Former Federal employees who died subject to or who retired under a Federal Government retirement system other than CSRS or FERS, or their surviving spouses and/or children, who have received or are receiving benefits from FEGLI and/or FEHBP.

f. Former spouses of Federal employees who have received or are receiving CSRS or FERS benefits, or who have filed a court order awarding future benefits.

Categories of records in the system:

This system comprises those retirement service history records of employee's service in the Federal Government from their current employing agency if the employee has been converted to the Retirement Systems Modernization Program and/or an agency other than for the agency in which they may presently be employed. Start Printed Page 15014Also included in the system are current personnel data pertaining to active United States Postal Service employees who, by virtue of the provisions set forth in 5 U.S.C. 2105(e), are not considered civil service employees. It also contains information concerning health benefit enrollment/change in enrollment, and information developed in support of claims for benefits made under the retirement, health benefits, and life insurance programs for Federal employees that OPM administers. Also included are medical records and supporting evidence on those individuals whose application for disability retirement has been rejected. Consent forms and other records related to the withholding of State income tax from annuitant payments, whether physically maintained by the State or OPM, are included in this system. Consent forms and other records related to enrollment in the Preauthorized Debit Program, whether physically maintained by the authorized lockbox bank or OPM, are included in the system.

These records contain the following information:

a. Documentation of Federal service subject to the CSRS or FERS.

b. Documentation of service credit and refund claims made under the CSRS or FERS.

c. Documentation of voluntary contributions made by eligible individuals.

d. Retirement and death claims files, including documents supporting the retirement application, health benefits, and life insurance eligibility, medical records supporting disability claims (after receipt by OPM), and designations of beneficiary.

e. Claim review files pertaining to requests made under the FEHBP reviewed by OPM.

f. Enrollment and change in enrollment information under the FEHBP.

g. Documentation of continuing coverage for life insurance and health benefits for annuitants and their survivors under a Federal Government retirement system other than the CSRS or FERS, or for compensationers and their survivors under the Office of Workers' Compensation programs.

h. The system also maintains a file of court orders submitted by former spouses of Federal employees. These court orders are submitted to support claims to apportion funds/benefits due to a Federal employee at some point in the future.

i. Records relating to overpayments made to annuitants, survivor annuitants, spouses and/or dependents. These records may be retained in OPM or provided to the Department of the Treasury, pursuant to the Debt Collection Act of 1996. There are two different systems applicable to overpayments. The OPM financial management system uses the Social Security Number (SSN) as part of the identifying information in the record. The Debt Collection Act of 1996 requires agencies to turn over all receivables more than 180 days past due to the Department of the Treasury for all further collection activity. The SSN is one of the required fields for transferring the record to the Department of the Treasury. OPM may obtain the SSN from case files or requests made to credit bureaus.

Includes the following with any revisions or amendments:

Section 3301 and chapters 83, 84, 87, 89 of title 5, United States Code, Pub. L. 83-598, 84-356, 86-724, and 94-455; and Executive Order 9397.

Purpose(s):

These records provide information and verification on which to base entitlement and computation of CSRS and FERS benefits, CSRS and FERS and survivors' benefits, FEHBP and enrollments, and FEGLI benefits, and to withhold State income taxes from annuitant payments. These records may also be used to compute CSRS and FERS benefit estimates. These records also serve to review rejection of applicants for Federal employment on medical suitability grounds. These records also may be used to locate individuals for personnel research. These records also provide information and verification concerning enrollment/change in enrollment in a plan under the FEHBP
