General Description of Collection: This collection includes reporting, recordkeeping and disclosure requirements associated with the FDIC's Temporary Liquidity Guarantee (TLG) Program. TLG Program is comprised of (1) a guarantee by the FDIC of all unsecured, unsubordinated debt of insured depository institutions, their bank holding companies, financial holding companies, and thrift holding companies (other than unitary thrift holding companies) issued between October 14, 2008, and June 30, 2009, with guarantees expiring not later than June 30, 2012, and with a system of fees to be paid by these institutions for such guarantees; and (2) a 100 percent guaranty of non-interest bearing transaction accounts held by insured depository institutions until December 31, 2009 (FDIC guarantees). The TLG program is designed to strengthen confidence and encourage liquidity in the banking system in order to ease lending to creditworthy businesses and consumers. The reporting, recordkeeping and disclosure requirements apply to eligible entities participating in either the Debt Guarantee Component of the program or the Deposit Guarantee Component or both. The information obtained allows the FDIC to monitor its exposure under the TLG Program and determine assessments for entities participating in the program. The required disclosures ensure that depositors, debt holders, and the general public are on notice as to which entities are participating in the program, the extent to which deposits in noninterest-bearing transaction accounts are FDIC-insured, and whether newly-issued senior unsecured debt is guaranteed by the FDIC.

Request for Comment

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodologies and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the collection should be modified prior to submission to OMB for review and approval. Comments submitted in response to this notice also will be summarized or included in the FDIC's requests to OMB for full clearance of this collection. All comments will become a matter of public record.
