PhillipB, director of the ■Winston-Salem Veterans Admin istration regional office, said nearly one million checks mailed November 1st by 'VA carried a welcome reminder to the recip ients that they were relieved of some paperwork. Phillips explained that PL 91- 588, enacted last December, al lows the VA administrator to ex empt fixim filing annual income questionnaises (IQ) those pen- sionetrs 72 years old and older who have been on the rolls dur ing two conseoutive yeai-s. These pensioners include vet erans, widows, and parents re ceiving dependency and indem nity compensation (Did pay ments ifitwn VA. Phillips pointed out that VA usually mails the questionnaires to pensioners with their Novem ber 1 checks, but this year about half of the pensioners received notices that they wouldn’t have to file IQs. However, it was stressed that even though they won’t have to file IQs, these 72 year old pen sioners still must continue to re- poht changes In income to VA. VA adjusts pension and DIC payments from information ob tained from IQs, it was explain ed. Pensipns are paid, on the ! basis of need, to veterans total- ' ly and permanently disabled from i nonservice causes, and to wldoiws I and children of veterans who die i of nonservice causes, j Parents with limited income of I veterans who die of service con- i nected disabilities may be eligd- 1 ble for Dependency and Indem- 1 nity Oopensation. 1 Phillips urged veterans, de pendents and survivors who ■ think they may 'be eli/gible for pension, DIC or other benefits to contact their Icxal VA office, or local veterans service organ ization representatives. layceesSeeh Nominatioiis The Kings Mountain Jaycees will again this year honor a Boss of the Year, a Young Man of the Year, and a Young Edlulca- tor of the Year.
