Consideration will be given to all comments received by October 29, 2007.

Title, Associated Form, and OMB Number: Dependency Statements; Parent (DD Form 137-3), Child Born Out of Wedlock (DD Form 137-4), Incapacitated Child Over Age 21 (DD Form 137-5), Full Time Student 21-22 Years of Age (DD Form 137-6), and Ward of the Court (DD Form 137-7); OMB Number 0730-0014.

Number of Respondents: 19,440.

Responses per Respondent: 1.

Annual Responses: 19,440.

Average Burden per Response: 1.25 hours.

Needs and Uses: This information collection is used 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 age 21-22, or a ward of a court is provided by the military member or by another Start Printed Page 55182individual 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 more than one half of the claimed dependent's monthly expenses. DoD Financial Management Regulation 7000.14-R, Vol. 7A, defines dependency and directs that dependency be proven.

The requirement to provide the information decreases the possibility of monetary allowances being approved on behalf of ineligible dependents.

Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain benefits.

OMB Desk Officer: Ms. Hillary Jaffe.
