Title: Recovery of Debts Owed to the United States Government by Administrative Offset 
Abstract:

The Railroad Retirement Board (Board) proposes to amend section 367 of the Board’s regulations, Recovery of Debts Owed to the United States Government by Administrative Offset. Specifically, the Board proposes to amend section 367.3(a), Board Responsibilities. Section 367.3(a) states that all non-tax debts over 180 days delinquent shall be referred to the Department of the Treasury for administrative offset through the Treasury Offset Program as required by 31 U.S.C. 3716. 31 U.S.C. 3716 was amended by the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act), Public Law 113-101. The DATA Act now requires agencies to refer to the Department of the Treasury valid, delinquent non-tax debts for the purpose of administrative offset at 120 days. The proposed amendment to section 367.3(a) of the Board’s regulation would change from 180 days to 120 days the debts referred to the Department of the Treasury in compliance with the DATA Act.
