4185.

OMB Control Number: 2900-0108.

Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: A claimant's eligibility to Pension or Parents' Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) is determined, in part, by the claimant's countable income. Authority is found at 38 U.S.C. 1521, 38 U.S.C. 1541, and 38 U.S.C. 1315. VA Form 21P-4185 is used to gather information that is necessary to determine a claimant's countable income received from rental property and/or operation of a business. Some expenses associated with rental property and business operation are deductible from the gross income received. Complete information about expenses and income is necessary in order to determine the net amount of income that is countable. The information is used to determine eligibility for VA benefits, and, if eligibility exists, the proper rate of payment.

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 Vol. 82, No. 205, Wednesday, October 25, 2017, page 49482.
