The Department of Veteran Affairs recently updated their “Verification of VA Benefits” Form (VA Form 26-8937), which supersedes the previous revision (September 2006). There are two substantive changes to the form:
1) Replace the fourth bullet in the “INSTRUCTIONS TO LENDER” section that previously stated:
“is surviving spouse of a veteran who died on active duty or as a result of a service-connected disability,” to instead read: “is surviving spouse of a veteran and in receipt of DIC payments” and
2) Update the web link in the “Respondent Burden” section near the end of the form.
We will be updating our version of this form (Cx3952) accordingly. This update will become effective on April 9, 2013. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please contact Client Support at 1.800.497.3584.
