[OMB Control No. 3206-0156]

Proposed Information Collection; Request for Comments on a 
Revised Information Collection; Standard Forms 2800 and 2800A

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, ``Application for 
Death Benefits under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS)'' (OMB 
Control No. 3206-0156; form SF 2800), is needed to collect information 
so that OPM can pay death benefits to the survivors of Federal 
employees and annuitants. ``Documentation and Elections in Support of 
Application for Death Benefits When Deceased Was an Employee at the 
Time of Death'' (OMB Control No. 3206-0156; form SF 2800A), is needed 
for deaths in service so that survivors can make the needed elections 
regarding military service.
    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 68,000 SF 2800's are processed annually. The 
completion time for this form is approximately 45 minutes. An annual 
burden of 51,000 hours is estimated. Approximately 6,800 applicants 
will use SF 2800A annually. The completion time for this form is also 
approximately 45 minutes. An annual burden of 5,100 hours is estimated. 
The total burden is 56,100 hours.
