SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act

and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an 
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal 
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform 
its statutory obligations. The Acting Director, Information Collection 
Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office 
of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information 
collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each 
proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the 
following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, 
existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; 
(4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; 
(5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or 
Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment.

Federal Student Aid

    Type of Review: New.
    Title: FFEL Program IBR Plan Request and IBR Plan Alternative 
Documentation of Income.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 1,692,869.
Burden Hours: 936,721.

    Abstract: The IBR Plan Request form serves as the means by which a 
borrower with FFEL Program loans requests to repay those loans under 
the IBR Plan and provides certain information that is needed by the 
borrower's loan holder to determine whether the borrower is eligible to 
repay under the IBR Plan and to calculate the borrower's monthly 
payment amount under the IBR Plan. The IBR Plan Alternative 
Documentation of Income form serves as the means by which a borrower 
who is repaying FFEL Program loans under the IBR provides the 
borrower's loan holder with alternative documentation of the borrower's 
income if the borrower's adjusted gross income (AGI) is not available 
from the IRS, or if the loan holder believes that the borrower's most 
recently reported AGI does not accurately reflect the borrower's 
current income. Under the FFEL Program regulations, a borrower's AGI is 
used to calculate the monthly loan payment amount under the IBR Plan.
