Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request for Reclearance of a 
Revised Information Collection: RI 38-128

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 reclearance of a revised information 
collection. RI 38-128, It's Time to Sign Up for Direct Deposit, is 
primarily used by OPM to give recent retirees the opportunity to waive 
Direct Deposit of their annuity payments. The form is sent only if the 
separating agency did not give the retiring employee this election 
opportunity. This form may also be used to enroll in Direct Deposit, 
which was its primary use before Public Law 104-134 was passed. This 
law requires OPM to make all annuity payments by Direct Deposit unless 
the payee has waived the service in writing.
    Approximately 20,000 forms are completed annually. The form takes 
approximately 30 minutes to complete. The annual estimated burden is 
10,000 hours.
