Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request for Review of an 
Existing Information Collection: Court Orders Affecting Retirement 

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 an existing information 
collection. The regulations describe how former spouses give us written 
notice of a court order requiring us to pay benefits to the

former spouse. Specific information is needed before OPM can make 
court-ordered benefit payments.
    Approximately 19,000 former spouses apply for benefits based on 
court orders annually. We estimate it takes approximately 30 minutes to 
collect the information. The annual burden is 9,500 hours.
