Authority: 38 U.S.C. 101 (4).
Title: Certification of School Attendance or Termination (VA Forms 21-8960 and 21-8960-1).
OMB Control Number: 2900-0458.
Type of Review: Reinstatement of a previously approved collection.
Abstract: VA compensation and pension programs require current information to determine eligibility for benefits. VA Forms 21-8960 and 21-8960-1 solicit information that is needed to determine continued benefit eligibility for schoolchildren between the ages of 18 and 23. If the collection were not conducted or were conducted less frequently, VA would be unable to verify continued entitlement in a timely manner, and increased overpayments would result.
The burden estimate for VA Forms 21-8960 and 21-8960-1 has decreased as the number of respondent total has reduced over the past year.
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 86 FR 35 on February 24, 2021, pages 11385 and 11386.
Affected Public: Individuals or Households.
Estimated Annual Burden: 1,543.
Estimated Average Burden per Respondent: 10 minutes.
Frequency of Response: Once.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 9,259.
