Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

ACTION: Notice.


    The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, the 
following proposal for collection of information under the provisions 
of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
    Title, Form Number, and OMB Number: Validation of Public or 
Community Service Employment Performed by Retired Personnel Retired 
Under the Temporary Early Retirement Authority for Increased Retirement 
Compensation; DD form 2676; OMB Number 0704-0357.
    Type of Request: Revision.
    Number of Respondents: 1,775.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Annual Responses: 1,775.
    Average Burden per Response: 10 minutes.
    Annual Burden Hours: 296.
    Needs and Uses: Public Law 102-484, section 4464, required the 
Department of Defense to develop policy and procedures to validate and 
credit increased compensation for qualifying public and community 
service employment performed by retired personnel of the Armed Forces 
under the ``Temporary Early Retirement Authority Program.'' Public Law 
103-337, section 542, extended this program to the Coast Guard. This 
information, which uses DD Form 2676, will allow DoD and Coast Guard to 
collect necessary information to recompute retired pay when the 
participating member qualifies under this program. Respondents to this 
program will be registered public or community service employers. The 
data are submitted by the Defense Manpower Data Center to either the 
Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) or the Coast Guard 
Finance Center for update of final pay information files. When a member 
reaches age 62, the Finance Centers will recompute retirement pay, 
adding whatever public or community service employment was validated 
during the enhanced retirement qualification period.
    Affected Public: Business or Other For-Profit; Not-For-Profit 
Institutions; Federal Government; State, Local, or Tribal Government.
    Frequency: On occasion; Annually.
    Respondents Obligation: Required to Obtain or Retain Benefits.
    OMB Desk Officer: Mr. Edward C. Springer.
