Abstract: VBA administers an integrated program of of benefits and services established by law for Veterans, service personnel, and their dependents, survivors, and/or beneficiaries. A claimant's eligibility for pension benefits or Parents' Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) is determined, in part, by countable income. VA Form 21P-4185 Report of Income from Property or Business, is used to report income and expenses that derived from rental property and/or the operation of a business. VBA uses this form to determine whether the claimant is eligible for VA benefits and, if eligibility exists, the proper rate of payment. In an effort to safeguard Veterans and their beneficiaries from financial exploitation, the instructions on VA Form 21P-4185 were amended to include information regarding VA-accredited attorneys or agents charging fees in connection with a proceeding before the Department of Veterans Affairs with respect to a claim.Start Printed Page 21811
