OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT


Submission for OPM Review; Request for Comments on a Revised 
Information Collection: (OMB Control No. 3206-0174; Forms RI 20-63, RI 
20-116 and RI 20-117)

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: 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 review of a revised information 
collection. ``Survivor Annuity Election for a Spouse'' (OMB Control No. 
3206-0174; Form RI 20-63), is used by annuitants to elect a reduced 
annuity with a survivor annuity for their spouse. (OMB Control No. 
3206-0174; Form RI 20-116) is a cover letter for RI 20-63 giving 
information about the cost to elect less than the maximum survivor 
annuity. This letter is used to supply the information that may have 
been requested by the annuitant about the cost of electing less than 
the maximum survivor annuity. (OMB Control No. 3206-0174; RI 20-117) is 
a cover letter for RI 20-63 giving information about the cost to elect 
the maximum survivor annuity. This letter may be used to ask for more 
information.
    Booklets RI 20-63A, Information on Electing a Survivor Annuity for 
Your Spouse, and RI 20-63B, Information on Electing a Survivor Annuity 
for Your Spouse When You are Providing a Former Spouse Survivor 
Annuity, are no longer needed.
    We estimate 2,400 RI 20-63 forms are returned each year electing 
survivor annuities and 200 annuitants return the cover letter to ask 
for information about the cost to elect less than the maximum survivor 
annuity or to refuse to provide any survivor benefit. We estimate it 
takes an average of 45 minutes per response to complete the form with a 
burden of 1,800 hours and 10 minutes to complete the letter, which 
gives a burden of 34 hours. The total burden for RI 20-63 is 1,834 
hours.
    For copies of this proposal, contact Cyrus S. Benson on (202) 606-
4808, FAX (202) 606-0910 or via E-mail to Cyrus.Benson@opm.gov. Please 
include a mailing address with your request.

DATES: Comments on this proposal should be received within 30 calendar 
days from the date of this publication.
