Please refer to ‘‘OMB Control No. 2900–0115’’ in any correspondence. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: 38 U.S.C. 103. Title: Supporting Statement Regarding Marriage (VA Form 21P–4171). OMB Control Number: 2900–0115. Type of Review: Reinstatement without change of a previously approved collection. Abstract: 38 U.S.C. 103 requires a marital relationship to be established before benefits may be paid to, or for, a spouse of a Veteran. VA codified this requirement at 38 CFR 3.1(j), which states ‘‘a marriage valid under the law of the place where the parties resided at the time of marriage, or the law of the place where the parties resided when the right to benefits accrued.’’ The information requested under this collection is necessary to establish the common-law marriage of a Veteran and the dependency of the Veteran’s common-law spouse for the purpose of paying monetary benefits. VBA utilizes VA Form 21P–4171 to collect information from third-parties regarding claimed common-law marriage between Veterans and spouses/ surviving spouses. VBA uses the information collected to determine whether or not the claimed commonlaw marriage is valid under the law of the place where the parties resided at the time of marriage, or the law of the place where the parties resided when the right to benefits accrued, to comply with 38 CFR 3.1(j) and pay monetary benefits. 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.
