SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority: 38 U.S.C. 1521, 1541, 1542.

Title: Supplemental Income Questionnaire (For Philippine Claims Only) (VA Form 21P-0784).

OMB Control Number: 2900-0668.

Type of Review: Reinstatement without change of a previously approved collection.

Abstract: Eligibility to benefits may be established based on service in the Philippine Scouts, Commonwealth Army of the Philippines, or recognized guerrilla organizations (38 U.S.C. 107). Title 38 U.S.C. 1521, 1541, and 1542 provide for payment of Pension to eligible veterans, surviving spouses, and Start Printed Page 60278surviving children. A claimant's eligibility for pension is determined, in part, by countable family income and net worth. Income information is requested by this form under the authority of 38 U.S.C. 1506.

VBA uses VA Form 21P-0784 to gather income information that is necessary to determine eligibility for Pension benefits. Entitlement to pension cannot be determined without complete information about a claimant's family income and net worth. Claimants residing in the Philippines have different types of income than claimants residing in the United States, and this form better captures those types of income than other VA Pension forms.

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 47080 on October 10, 2017.
