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) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension, without change, of a currently approved Start Printed Page 14171information collection. This information collection, “Life Insurance Election” (OMB Control No. 3206-0230; SF 2817), is used by Federal employees and assignees (those who have acquired control of an employee/annuitant's coverage through an assignment or “transfer” of the ownership of the life insurance). Clearance of this form for use by active Federal employees is not required according to the Paperwork Reduction Act (Pub. L. 98-615). The Public Burden Statement meets the requirements of 5 CFR 1320.8(b)(3). Therefore, only the use of this form by assignees, i.e. members of the public, is subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act.

Approximately 150 SF 2817 forms are completed annually by assignees. The form takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. The annual estimated burden is 37.5 hours
