SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract and Request for Comments

Section 709.4(b) of NCUA's Rules and Regulations (12 CFR 709) requires the liquidating agent of a credit union placed into involuntary liquidation to publish a notice to creditors instructing creditors to present their claims to the liquidating agent by a specified date. Section 709.6 requires that any party wishing to submit a claim against the liquidated credit union must submit a written proof of claim. In addition, the liquidating agent may require claimants to submit supplemental evidence. The new collection of information requirement is that those creditors making a claim must document their claim and submit it to the liquidating agent by using the proposed Proof of Claim form. The liquidating agent notifies creditors of the need to submit a claim by means of a published notice or letters sent directly to creditors. Generally, one entity would have one claim against a credit union placed in liquidation. The liquidating agent would use the completed Proof of Claim form to determine a claim has been made against a liquidated credit union and evaluate the claim for payment. On occasion, the liquidating agent may require supplemental evidence from the claimant. NCUA estimates the liquidating agent will request ten percent (10%) of the claimants to furnish additional evidence to support the claim.

In the Federal Register of June 17, 2014 (79 FR34555), NCUA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. NCUA received no comments.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the locations 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.
