Title: Application for Exclusion of Children's Income, VA Form 21-0571.
OMB Control Number: 2900-0510.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Abstract: A veteran's or surviving spouse's rate of Improved Pension is determined by family income. Normally, income of children who are members of the household is included in this determination. However, children's income may be excluded if it is unavailable or if consideration of that income would cause hardship. The information collected is used by VA to determine whether children's income can be excluded from consideration in determining a parent's eligibility for non-service-connected pension.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on August 14, 2001, at page 42709.
Affected Public: Individuals or households.
Estimated Annual Burden: 18,750 hours.
