Due to Congress authorizing VA to require a prospective fiduciary to obtain a surety bond as a part of the certification process of a prospective fiduciary, VA is requiring fiduciaries to submit proof of adequate bonding with annual accounting to facilitate its oversight responsibility as mandated. RIN 2900-AR11, Fiduciary Bond, does not use a form to collect this information. However, the amended information request is made by VA field fiduciary personnel. They make the request either verbally or by letter that informs the fiduciary to submit the original bond certificate or the contractual agreement between the fiduciary and the bonding company as proof of adequate bonding. This amended collection of information is required to fulfill VA requirements mandated by Congress, for oversight of fiduciaries. The VA Fiduciary Program would not be able to provide adequate oversight of certain fiduciaries appointed to receive VA benefits in excess of $25,000 on behalf of a beneficiary without proof that surety bonds are in place to protect these funds.

Miscellaneous Actions
The previous request didn't have any burden approved as there isn't a form to collect information. Hence, the reason why ROCIS is assuming this is an increase. However, as there were reported to be 10000 respondents in recent years, this amendment will result in a decrease from these reported respondents in the amount shown above.
