Privacy Act Notice: The VA will not disclose information collected on this form to any source other than what has been authorized under the Privacy
Act of 1974 or title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, section 1.526 for routine uses (e.g., VA sends educational forms or letters with a veteran's
identifying information to the veteran's school or training establishment to (1) assist the veteran in the completion of claims forms or (2) for the VA
to obtain further information as may be necessary from the school for the VA to properly process the veteran's education claim or to monitor his or
her progress during training) 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 to obtain or retain education
benefits. Giving us your SSN account information is voluntary. Refusal to provide your SSN by itself will not result in the denial of benefits. The VA
will not deny an individual benefits for refusing to provide his or her SSN unless the disclosure of the SSN is required by a Federal Statute of law
enacted before January 1, 1975, and still in effect. The requested information is considered relevant and necessary to determine the maximum
benefits under the law. While you do not have to respond, VA cannot process your claim for education assistance unless the information is furnished
as required by existing law (38 U.S.C. 3471). The responses you submit are considered confidential (38 U.S.C. 5701). Any information provided by
applicants, recipients, and others may be subject to verification through computer matching programs with other agencies.
Respondent Burden: We need this information to determine your eligibility for education benefits (38 U.S.C. 3471). Title 38, United States Code,
allows us to ask for this information. We estimate that you will need an average of 15 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
