Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request for Review of a 
Revised Information Collection: (OMB Control No. 3206-0187; RI 38-31)

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 a revised information 
collection. This information collection, ``Request for Information 
About Your Missing Payment'' (OMB Control No. 3206-0187; RI 38-31), is 
sent in response to a notification by an individual of the loss or non-
receipt of a payment from the Civil Service Retirement and Disability 
Fund. This form requests the information needed to enable OPM to trace 
and/or reissue payment. Missing payments may also be reported to OPM by 
a telephone call.
    Approximately 8,000 reports of missing payments are processed each 
year. Of these, we estimate that 7,800 are reports of missing checks. 
Approximately 200 reports of missing checks are reported using RI 38-31 
and 7,600 are reported by telephone. A response time of ten minutes per 
form reporting a missing check is estimated; the same amount of time is 
needed to report the missing checks or electronic funds transfer (EFT) 
payments using the telephone. The annual burden for reporting missing 
checks is 1,300 hours. The remaining 200 reports relate to EFT 
payments. No missing EFT payments are reported using RI 38-31. The 
annual burden for reporting missing EFT payments is 33 hours. The total 
burden is 1,333 hours.
