Under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, Federal agencies are required to publish notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed new collection of information and allow 60 days for public comment in response to the notice. SUMMARY: Written comments and recommendations on the proposed collection of information should be received on or before July 22, 2016. DATES: Submit written comments on the collection of information through Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) at www.Regulations.gov or to Nancy J.

L. 104–13; 44 U.S.C. 3501–21), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. This request for comment is being made pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA.

Title: Notice of Disagreement (NOD) (Pension, Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC), Burial and Accrued), VA Form 21P–0970. OMB Control Number: 2900–NEW. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Type of Review: New Collection (Request for a new OMB Control Number). Abstract: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), through its Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), administers an integrated program of benefits and services, established by law, for Veterans, service personnel, and their dependents and/or beneficiaries. Information is requested by this form under the authority of 38 U.S.C. 7105. The statute is codified at 38 CFR 20.201, 20.302, and 20.501. The statute and regulations describe the process by which a claimant can appeal the decisions made by VBA on a claim for benefits. VA Form 21P–0970 will be used by the claimant to initiate an appeal by indicating disagreement with a decision issued by a VA Regional Office (RO) specifically related to a claim for VA pension benefits, dependency and indemnity compensation (DIC) benefits, burial benefits, and accrued benefits. VA Form 21P–0970 will be the claimant’s first step in the appeal process. The respondent may or may not continue with an appeal to the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA). If the claimant opts to continue to BVA for an appeal, this form will be included in the claim folder as evidence. VA will provide VA Form 21P–0970 to the claimant with the notification letter of the decision in paper form or via hyperlink to VA’s Web site. The use of VA Form 21P–0970 will be mandatory when claimants initiate an appeal of a decision on a pension, DIC, burial, or accrued claims for benefits. Currently, VBA does not have a mandatory form which would enable the claimant to initiate an appeal of a decision made regarding entitlement to pension, DIC, burial, or accrued benefits. As a result, claimants may provide their notice of disagreement in any format. The variety of submissions hampers efforts to identify, and process timely, the claimant’s appeal. With the implementation of this collection, the submissions will be standardized, increasing efficiency. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Annual Burden: 6,000 hours. Estimated Average Burden per Respondent: 30 minutes. Frequency of Response: One time. Estimated Number of Respondents: 12,000. E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1
