APPLICATION OF SURVIVING SPOUSE OR CHILD FOR REPS BENEFITS
(RESTORED ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM FOR SURVIVORS)
PRIVACY ACT INFORMATION: 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 1.576 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 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). 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 in effect
prior to January 1, 1975, and still in effect. The requested information is considered relevant and necessary to determine maximum benefits under the law. The
responses you submit are considered confidential (38 U.S.C. 5701). Information submitted is subject to verification through computer matching programs with other
agencies.
RESPONDENT BURDEN: We need this information to determine eligibility for REPS benefits (38 U.S.C. 5101 (a)). Title 38, United States Code, allows us to ask
for this information. We estimate that you will need an average of 20 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 or suggestions about this form.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
WHO IS ELIGIBLE: Benefits are payable to certain survivors of members or former members of the Armed Forces who died while
on active duty prior to August 13, 1981, or who died from a disability incurred in or aggravated by active duty prior to August 13,
1981. Service in the Public Health Service or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration does not qualify.
SURVIVING SPOUSE: If you were married to the veteran at the time of his or her death and are not currently married, you may be
eligible for REPS benefits for yourself when the youngest child in your care reaches age 16. These benefits will terminate when the
child reaches age 18, whether or not the child is still in high school.
CHILD: If you are an unmarried child of the veteran between the ages of 18 and 21 and are attending a postsecondary school full
time, you may be eligible for REPS. In the United States, "postsecondary school" refers to school above the level of high school. If
you are age 18 and still in high school, you are not eligible for REPS. However, you may apply to the Social Security Administration
for an extension of benefits.
