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 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. An example of a routine use allows the VA to send educational forms or
letters with a individual's identifying information to the individual's school or training establishment to (1) assist the individual 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 individual's education claim or to monitor his or her
progress during training. Your obligation to respond is required to obtain or retain 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.
