Title: Beneficiary Travel Mileage Reimbursement Application Form, VA Form 10-3542.
OMB Control Number: 2900-NEW.
Type of Review: New collection.
Abstract: The purpose of the information collection is for beneficiaries to apply for the beneficiary travel mileage reimbursement benefit in an efficient, convenient and accurate manner. VHA must determine the identity of the claimant, the dates and length of the trip being claimed based on addresses of starting and ending points, and whether expenses other than mileage are being claimed. The form is used only when the claimant chooses not to apply verbally and is provided for their convenience. This collection of information is necessary to enable the VHA to provide this benefit and appropriately ensure that funds are being paid to the correct claimant.
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 June 14, 2013, at page 36035.
Affected Public: Individuals or households.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 580,000.
