Title: Notice to Department of Veterans Affairs of Veteran or Beneficiary Incarcerated in Penal Institution (VA Form 21-4193).

OMB Control Number: 2900-0116.

Abstract: VA Form 21-4193 is used to gather information from penal institutions about incarcerated VA beneficiaries.

Without this collection of information, VA would be unable to accurately adjust the rates of incarcerated beneficiaries and overpayments would result.

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 at 82 FR 69 on April 12, 2017, pages 17742 and 17743.
