Title: Application for Exclusion of Children’s Income (VA Form 21P–0571). OMB Control Number: 2900–0510. Type of Review: Reinstatement without change of a previously approved collection. Abstract: A veteran’s or surviving spouse’s rate of Improved Pension is determined by family income. Normally, income of children who are members of the household is included in this determination. However, children’s income may be excluded if it is unavailable or if consideration of that income would cause hardship. 38 U.S.C. 1521(h) and 1541(g) provide the authority for the exclusion of children’s income based on unavailability or hardship. VA Form 21P–0571, Application for Exclusion of Children’s Income, is being transferred from Compensation Service to Pension and Fiduciary Service, due to changes in business lines. VA Form 21P–0571 is used for the sole purpose of collecting the information needed to determine whether children’s income is available to the beneficiary, and if it would cause hardship to consider their income. 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.
