The reviewing office makes determinations on the applicability of deductions, termination
or adjustment of benefit rates and notifies the VA of our determination.
When the VA suspends benefits, benefits are suspended for all beneficiaries on the
account. The VA will not resume payments until we send an amended award showing the
rates payable to the remaining beneficiaries.
If the VA is notified of death or marriage of a non-insured beneficiary, the VA will
forward the information to the PC via VA Form 21-8046, or on a VA computer printout
“406 Screen” —Payment Notice (Stop-Suspend-Resume). Any other event will be reported by a letter
to the PC. See RS 01702.572C. for an exhibit of the VA Form 21-8046.
