Proposed Collection; Request For Comments On A Revised 
Information Collection: (OMB Control No. 3206-0144; Form 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 review of a revised 
information collection. This information collection, ``We Need the 
Social Security Number of the Person Named Below'' (OMB Control No. 
3206-0144; Form RI 38-45), is used by the Civil Service Retirement 
System and the Federal Employee 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 the 
Office of Personnel Management, and whether it will have practical 
utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection 
of information 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 the use 
of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
    Approximately 3,000 RI 38-45 forms will be completed annually. We 
estimate it takes approximately 5 minutes to complete the form. The 
estimated annual burden is 250 hours.
    For copies of this proposal, contact Cyrus S. Benson on (202) 606-
4808, FAX (202) 606-0910 or via E-mail to [email protected]. Please 
include a mailing address with your request.

DATES: Comments on this proposal should be received within December 6,
