OMB Control Number: 2900-0510.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Abstract: The information collected on VA Form 21-0571 is used to determine whether children's income can be excluded from consideration in determining a parent's eligibility for non-service connected pension. 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 including that income would cause a hardship.
