Yes. Even if no information has changed, the VOE affidavit will need to be completed with your signature notarized. Also complete the appropriate IRS Form 4506 or 4506-T depending on your tax filing status. A copy of your Federal Tax Return is not required at this time.

Yes. All questions should be answered completely and accurately.

Please insert Not Applicable (NA) in that field. An FPPA employee may contact you by phone or in writing to verify or expand on your information. You will not be considered in compliance until FPPA receives all information being requested.

Yes, FPPA has legal authority to request tax documents in order to help make this eligibility determination. In addition, if a disability retiree has filed a joint tax return, we are legally able to request the W-2s and 1099s from the disability retiree’s spouse. This is necessary to verify that all of the income listed on the Federal Tax Return is accounted for and that there is no unaccounted income that could possibly be tied to a member’s employment not disclosed to FPPA.

IRS Forms 4506 & 4506-T may be used to confirm marital status, employment, and income / wages earned (as applicable) as reported on the VOE Affidavit.
