Proposed Collection; Comment Request for Extension of a Currently 
Approved Collection: RI 38-45

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) intends to submit to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of a currently 
approved collection. RI 38-45, We Need the Social Security Number of 
the Person Named Below, is used by the Civil Service Retirement System 
and the Federal Employees Retirement System to identify the records of 
individuals with similar or the same names. It is also needed to report 
payments to the Internal Revenue Service.
    Comments are particularly invited on: whether this collection of 
information is

necessary for the proper performance of functions of OPM, and whether 
it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public 
burden of this collection is accurate, and based on valid assumptions 
and methodology; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on those who are to respond, through use of 
the appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
    Approximately 3,000 RI 38-45 forms are completed annually. Each 
form requires approximately 5 minutes to complete. The annual estimated 
burden is 250 hours.

DATES: Comments on this proposal should be received within 60 calendar 
days from the date of this publication.
