Standard Form 1153, Claim for Unpaid Compensation of Deceased Civilian Employee, is used to collect information from individuals who have been designated as beneficiaries of the unpaid compensation of a deceased Federal employee or who believe that their relationship to the deceased entitles them to receive the unpaid compensation of the deceased Federal employee. OPM needs this information to adjudicate the claim and properly assign a deceased Federal employee's unpaid compensation to the appropriate individual(s). The proposed revision to the expiring ICR responds to suggestions received from users. Part B, 1. Is changed to clarify that a beneficiary may include a legal entity or estate as provided for in 5 CFR 178.203© and to provide instructions if more room is needed to list designated beneficiaries.
