PRIVACY ACT NOTICE: VA will not disclose the information collected on this form to any source other than what has been authorized under the Privacy Act of
1974 or Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations 1.526 for routine uses (i.e., civil or criminal law enforcement, congressional communications, epidemiological or research
studies, the collection of money owed to the United States, litigation in which the United States is a party or has an interest, the administration of VA programs and
delivery of VA benefits, verification of identity and status, and personnel administration) as identified in the VA system of records, 58VA21/22/28, Compensation,
Pension, Education, and Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Records - VA, published in the Federal Register. Your obligation to respond is required in order to
obtain or retain benefits. Giving us your SSN account information is mandatory. Applicants are required to provide their SSN under Title 38 U.S.C. 5101 (c) (1). The
VA will not deny an individual benefit for refusing to provide your SSN unless the disclosure of the SSN is required by Federal Statute of law in effect prior to January
1, 1975, and still in effect. Information that you furnish may be utilized in computer matching programs with other Federal or State agencies for the purpose of
determining your eligibility to receive VA benefits, as well as to collect any amount owed to the United States by virtue of your participation in any benefit program
administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
RESPONDENT BURDEN: We need this information to determine your eligibility for benefits for children with certain disabilities who are born of Vietnam veterans
or certain Thailand or Korea service veterans (38 U.S.C. chapter 18). Title 38, United States Code, allows us to ask for this information. We estimate that you will need
an average of 10 minutes to review the instructions, find the information, and complete this form. VA cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless a
valid OMB control number is displayed. You are not required to respond to a collection of information if this number is not displayed. Valid OMB control numbers can
be located on the OMB Internet Page at www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain. If desired, you can call 1-800-827-1000 to get information on where to send comments
