General Description of Collection: The collection involves forms used by the FDIC to obtain information from individual depositors and deposit brokers necessary to supplement the records of failed depository institutions to make determinations regarding deposit insurance coverage for depositors of failed institutions. The information provided allows the FDIC to identify the actual owners of an account and each owner's interest in the account.

Current Action: The FDIC is proposing modifications, which may be considered substantive and material, to the following forms: Declaration for Trust, Form 7200/05, and Declaration for Testamentary Deposit (Multiple Grantors), Form 7200/09. In addition, the FDIC proposes to add to the collection the following new form: Declaration for Irrevocable Trust, Form 7200/18. Specifically, with respect to Form 7200/05, the FDIC is changing the title of the form to “Declaration for Revocable Trust,” thereby eliminating use of the form for irrevocable trusts; deleting the request for information on ownership interest (by percentage or dollar amount); adding a request for information on beneficiary type (i.e., individual, charity, or non-profit) and adding, for charitable or non-profit organizations, a request that the respondent indicate whether the charity or non-profit is recognized by the IRS. The FDIC believes that the changes to Form 7200/05 do not render it any more or less burdensome than the existing form; therefore, the estimated time to complete the form is unchanged. There is, however, an estimated decrease (of 200) in the number of respondents because the form will no longer be used to collect information for irrevocable trusts. With respect to Form 7200/09, the FDIC is proposing to eliminate the request for information regarding the relationship of each beneficiary to the grantors; eliminate the requirement to provide a date of death for any named beneficiaries who are deceased; add a request for information on beneficiary type (i.e., individual, charity, or non-profit) and add, for charitable or non-profit organization beneficiaries, a request that the respondent indicate whether the charity or non-profit is recognized by the IRS. The FDIC believes that changes to Form 7200/09 do not render it any more or less burdensome than the existing form; therefore, the current burden estimates remain unchanged. With respect to new Form 7200/18, it does collect information regarding irrevocable trusts that previously was collected on Form 7200/05. However, unlike old Form 7200/05, new Form 7200/18 does not request information on the ownership interest (percentage or dollar amount) of beneficiaries, or the date of death or any deceased beneficiaries, but does collect information on the beneficiary type (i.e., individual, charity or non-profit) and, for charitable or non-profit organizations, on whether the entity is recognized by the IRS. The estimated response time for new Form 7200/18 is 30 minutes and the estimated number of respondents is 200.
