I. Abstract and Request for Comments
NCUA is requesting comments on this new proposed collection. Section 709.4(b) of the NCUA Rules and Regulations (12 CFR 709) requires the liquidating agent to publish notice to creditors, instructing creditors to present their claims to the liquidating agent by a specified date. The collection of information requirement is that those creditors making a claim must document their claim and submit it to the liquidating agent. The information is used by NCUA to determine if a claim has been made against a liquidated credit union. Entities would be notified of the need to submit a claim via a letter sent directly to them, a published notice or via the NCUA Web site. Generally, one entity would have one claim against a credit union placed into liquidation. The liquidating agent would use the submitted form to determine a claim had been filed and evaluate it for payment. The information requested by this collection is required to be supplied only once by each creditor making a claim. The timeline for submitting claims is covered by statute.
The NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the location listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the public for review.
