VB 00205.001 General Evidence Requirements

A. Policy

PL 106-169 provides that no determination of entitlement to title VIII benefits can be made based solely on declarations by the individual concerning the claimant's qualification for benefits or other material facts. Such material information must be verified from independent or collateral sources. Additional information should be obtained, as necessary, to ensure that correct benefits are provided to entitled individuals or their representative payees.
