of its information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's

the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed 
information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The 
Department of Education is especially interested in public comment 
addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to 
the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be 
processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden 
accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the 
Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, 
including through the use of information technology. Please note that 
written comments received in response to this notice will be considered 
public records.
    Title of Collection: FFEL/Direct Loan/Perkins Military Service 
Deferment/Post-Active Duty Student Deferment Request & SCRA Request.
    OMB Control Number: 1845-0080.
    Type of Review: a revision of an existing information collection.

    Abstract: The Military Service/Post-Active Duty Student Deferment 
request form serves as the means by which a FFEL, Perkins, or Direct 
Loan borrower requests a military service deferment and/or post-active 
duty student deferment and provides his or her loan holder with the 
information needed to determine whether the borrower meets the 
applicable deferment eligibility requirements. The form also serves as 
the means by which the U.S. Department of Education identifies Direct 
Loan borrowers who qualify for the Direct Loan Program's no accrual of 
interest benefit for active duty service members.
    The SCRA Request form services as one of the means by which a FFEL 
or Direct Loan borrower requests that his or her loan holder limit the 
interest rate on his or her FFEL or Direct Loan Program loans to 6% 
during the period of the borrower's eligible military service. This is 
an optional form. Borrowers would continue to be able to simply request 
the limitation in writing.

    Dated: April 9, 2013.

Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, Privacy,
