Can I create my own VA 21-601?
No, you cannot create your own VA 21-61X and 21-302. We recommend purchasing a VA 21-61X (see FAQs) or 21-301 (see FAQs) for your new VA 21-605. (Read below for an explanation of the difference between the two VA's.) What about my VA 21-601's “Old Design”? The original design of the 1" x 6" (2.5 cm x 15.4 cm) VA21-601, as opposed to the VA 21-606, was based on the traditional 1" x 5" (2.5 cm x 13.5 cm) VA-1A. In other words, the original design was designed to have an extra 1/4” depth inside to house the dials. However, after the VA 21-601 was introduced in the early 1960s, it was discovered that a 1" x 6" VA21-601 would actually fit inside the VA-1A's 1" x 5" (2.5 cm x 13.5 cm) housing. That's because the 1" VA21-601 was designed to hold a slightly thicker sheet than the original one-piece metal VA1A. As such, the original 2 1/2" 1" x 6" VA21-601 sheet would not fit completely inside the 1 1/16” 1 1/4” (31.5 mm x 50 mm) housing of the original VA1A. This resulted in the need for the design that's common today. (Also, be aware that the 2 1/4" VA-1A was later retrofitted with its own 1" x 6" housing because of the need for the extra “extra depth”.) Does the VA 21-605 fit into the 1 1/8” VA21-01? If you would like to buy an 1 1/8" VA's, you can use our VA 21-605 or VA 21-301, but it is recommended that you purchase a more expensive 1" VA21-605 to hold the dials. (Please refer to Our VA 21-605 for an explanation of how we determine the value of the 1" VA's) The original VA21-601s, as opposed to the 1" x 6" version, were designed, so they could hold both the 24 and 36 hour dials easily.
What should I do with VA 21-601 when it’s complete?
Once VA 21-601 is complete, you should send your paperwork and a copy of your DD214 to the following address: U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs P.O. Box 1028 Baltimore, MD 21201 VA 21–601 Form (PDF) To file a claim for VA compensation, you must first contact your local veterans administration (VA) office to apply for a claim form and attach documentation of your discharge, illness, disability, etc. Can my child still be eligible for disability benefits? Some parents claim that their child is disabled under VA 21-601 (i.e., unable to work), even though such a claim is not authorized. This is because of a provision of the law that allows parents “who can prove that their child is able to work” to receive a tax-free disability payment. Some parents may be unaware of this benefit and claim their child has been “disabled” by a VA rule that they cannot follow. However, VA 21–601 expressly prohibits such benefits. If your child is unable to work due to physical or mental condition, or as a result of another disability, you should consult a lawyer who specializes in disability law. Do not rely on the assumption that your child can work, when your child has already been awarded benefits. What happens if I claim VA 21-601 and my child does not work? The amount of compensation your child will receive depends upon your child's age and your ability to work. A child who is 6 years old cannot work, and the amount of compensation he or she will receive depends on whether he or she is disabled, has a physical or mental condition that prevents him or her from working, or is unable to work because he or she has been awarded benefits. If VA 21–601 has been awarded as a result of a claim for disability, the VA will calculate the amount of compensation you are entitled to based upon your age: 0–4 years old 0.32 per week 5–12 years old 0.47 per week 13–18 years old 1.00 per week You and the VA cannot agree on the amount of compensation you ought to receive as a result of your disability.

How many people fill out VA 21-601 each year?
The number is unknown. “Because VA 21-601 is intended only for certain health care providers, the actual number of people who complete the survey could be higher than the number of people who completed it,” says Katherine Some at the VA Hospital Corps Network. The annual survey has been administered since 2004. Why is it important? Because the survey, developed by veterans groups, can help quantify patient wait times, and get doctors and hospitals to improve scheduling standards. “It has the most clinical relevance for the needs of our hospitals,” says Some. “It's the best way we know to tell how much we need to change for patient care in the nation's hospitals.” Is everything public? Yes, but people will have to access the information on a free website that's expected to launch early next year. In the meantime, you can get the data by calling or go online to
Is there a due date for VA 21-601?
If so, when is it due? Do you have any further comments? Are you requesting this for personal use or commercial use? Are you requesting this on behalf of a business? Would the VA be more than happy to assist you? Are you aware that if I receive your personal information, my data may be provided to a third party that knows, or has reasonable grounds to know, your identity. I am not your parent, guardian, or spouse. Do not give or provide any information about anyone else. Thank you, Jason. If you're not concerned with the security of your data, there's no need to contact the VA Office for Civil Rights because the VA simply says that “there is no formal response from the VA on this matter, and you should contact the person that you think has the right to release your data.” The only real way to get help with VA data privacy is for the VA to address a “remedial action needed” question in its complaint guidelines. I don't know about you, but I can't imagine a more urgent problem.
