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. This information collection, “We Need the Social Security Number of the Person Named Below” (OMB Control No. 3206-0144; Form RI 38-45), is used by the Civil Service Retirement System and the Federal Employee Retirement System to identify the records of individuals with similar or the same names. It is also needed to report payments to the Internal Revenue Service.
Comments are particularly invited on: whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Office of Personnel Management, 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 other forms of information technology.
Approximately 3,000 RI 38-45 forms will be completed annually. We estimate it takes approximately 5 minutes to complete the form. The estimated annual burden is 250 hours.
