Proposed Collection; Comment Request for Revision of a Currently 
Approved Information Collection: (OMB Control No. 3206-0230; Standard 
Form [SF] 2817)

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, ``Life Insurance 
Election'' (OMB Control No. 3206-0230; SF 2817), is used by Federal 
employees and assignees (those who have acquired control of an 
employee/annuitant's coverage through an assignment or ``transfer'' of 
the ownership of the life insurance). Clearance of this form for use by 
active Federal employees is not required according to the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (Pub. L. 98-615). The Public Burden Statement meets the 
requirements of 5 CFR 1320.8(b)(3). Therefore, only the use of this 
form by assignees, i.e. members of the public, is subject to the 
Paperwork Reduction Act.
    Comments are particularly invited on whether this 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 
    Approximately 150 SF 2817 forms are completed annually by 
assignees. This form takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. The 
annual estimated burden is 37.5 hours.
