The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Title, Forms, and OMB Number: Dependency Statements—Parent, Child Born Out of Wedlock, Incapacitated Child Over Age 21, Full Time Student 21-22 Years of Age, and Ward of a Court; DD Forms 137-3, 137-4, 137-5, 137-6, 137-7; OMB Number 0730-[To Be Determined].
Type of Request: New Collection.
Number of Respondents: 19,440.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Annual Responses: 19,440.
Average Burden per Response: 1.25 hours.
Annual Burden Hours: 24,300.
Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to certify dependency or obtain information to determine entitlement to basic allowance for housing (BAH) with dependent rate, travel allowance, or Uniformed Services Identification and Privilege Card. Information regarding a parent, a child born out-of-wedlock, an incapacitated child over age 21, a student 21-22, or a ward of a court is provided by the military member or by another individual who may be a member of the public. Pursuant to 37 U.S.C. 401, 403, 406, and 10 U.S.C. 1072 and 1076, the member must provide at least one-half of the claimed child's monthly expenses. DoDFMR 7000.14, Vol. 7 A, defines dependency and directs that dependency be proven. Dependency claim examiners use the information from these forms to determine the degree of benefits. The requirement to provide the information decreases the possibility of monetary allowances being approved on behalf of ineligible dependents.
Affected Public: Individuals or Households.
Frequency: On Occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Required to Obtain or Retain Benefits.
OMB Desk Officer: Mr. Edward C. Springer.
Written comments and recommendations on the proposed information collection should be sent to Mr. Springer at the Office of Management and Budget, Desk Officer for DoD, Room 10236, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503.
