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 IC 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.

    Abstract: This form serves as the means by which a borrower who is 
repaying Direct Loan Program loans under the Income-Contingent 
Repayment (ICR) Plan or the Income-Based Repayment (IBR) Plan provides 
the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) 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 Department 
believes that the borrower's most recently reported AGI does not 
accurately reflect the borrower's current income. Under the Direct Loan 
Program regulations, a borrower's AGI is used to calculate the monthly 
loan repayment amount under the ICR and IBR plans.
