Title, Associated Form and OMB Number: Dependency Statements; Parent (DD Form 137-3), Child Born Out of Wedlock under Age 21 (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 a Court (DD Form 137-7); OMB Control Number 0730-0014.
Type of Request: Reinstatement with Change.
Number of Respondents: 15,766.
Responses per Respondent: 1.33.
Annual Responses: 20,969.
Average Burden per Response: 50 minutes.
Annual Burden Hours: 17,474.
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, 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. A medical doctor or psychiatrist, college administrator, or a dependent's employer may need to provide information for claims. 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. DoDFMR 700.14-R, Vol. 7A, 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.
