Application, for Allowance.
Made by Clait B Dependents.
When the Bureau of War Risk In
surance ceased paying allotments not
carrying allowances, the former pro
cedure by which certain Class B de
pendents could apply for the family
allowance, was temporarily discontin
ued. Recently, however, instructions
have been issued permitting Class B
dependents to apply for the allowance
under the following conditions:
The family allowance will not., be
grunted upofi application ot a Class B
dependent unless the enlisted man
has made an allotment to this depend
ent on Form I B and filed it with the
Bureau of War Risk Insurance In
many cases this would be the form
1-B which he filled out several months
ago upon entering the service, but
upon which he either failed to request
the family allowance for the Class-B
dependent or failed to show the neces
sary proof of dependency.
The allotment formerly paid by the
Bureau of War-Risk Insurance as a re
suit of filing this form 1-B ceased on
June 30 because it did not carry an al
lowance. Application by the Class-B
dependent spported by the necessary
proof, as outlined below, will now re
vive this allotment and secuure the
family allowance as well.
If the man never filed a Form 1-B
the Class B application will not be
entertained. Thus, if he merely filled
out and filed with the War or Navy
Department, the allotment form re
quired by either of these departments
this would not be sufficient. But if he
originally filed a Form 1-B he need not
execute another one. His family will
be able to obtain the allowance if they
can submit the necessary proof de
scribed below without any further
action on his part.
Allotment Must Be Large Enough to
Support the Allowance.
The allotment originally made on
Form 1-B to the Class B dependent
must be sufficient in size to carry with
it a family allowance under the new
amendments to the law.. Thus it must
be at least $5 if the man is also pay
ng a compulsory allotment, or $15
If an unmarried man made an allot
ment of $10 to his mother on Form
1-B when he entered the service, her
application for family allowance would
not revive the allotment which was
discontinued automatically on the
30th of June or secure for her the al
lowance. This is because the amount
of the allotment was less than that re
quired by law to support an allowance,
In such circumstances the man would
have to make a larger allotment by
filing a new Form 1-B in order to se
cure an allowance for his mother
Allotment Through Departments Must
Not be to Another Person.
When the announcement was made
that allotments through the War-Risk
Insurance Bueau not carrying allow-
ances would automatically cease on
June 30, all men in the military or
naval service were informed that if
tney wisneu the allotments to con
tinue, they must make a new allot
ment through the allotment office of
their respective branch of the service
If a soldier made such an allotment
in July, for instance, through the
Quartermaster General's office, and
made it to the Class B dependent nam
ed in the Form 1-B previously filed
with the Bureau of War-Risk Insur
ance, the Class B dependent could ap
ply .for the allowance, thereby reviv
ing the former allotment through the
Bureau of War-Risk Insurance, which
will now carry an allowance with it.
With this revival of the former allot
ment, the new allotment through the
Quartermaster General's office would
be canceled without action by the man.
But if an allotment through the
Quartermaster General's office was
made to another person and not to the
Class B dependent previously named
in Form 1-B, this would Indicate that
the man no longer wished to allot to
this Class B dependent and hence the
former allotment through the Bureau
of War-Risk Insurance would not be

Suggested Form of Application.
No official form has been prescribed
by the Bureau of War-Risk Insurance
upon which a Class B dependent to
whom an allotment has been made
through the Bureau of War-Risk In
surance may apply for an allowance

facts stated therein are sworn to. To

Mary Hunter Smith being duly
sworn deposes and says: I am the
mother of the tibove named enlisted
man. Before entering the service I
and his brothers and Ulster named bo-
low were wholly (or partially) depend
ent upon him: George Smith, 12 years
old; Elizabeth Smith, 10 years old;
Frank Smith, 9 years old. He con
tributed an average of $60 per month
to our support and received board from
me of a value of approximately $15
permonth, making a net monthly con
tribution of $45.
The above-named enlisted man made
an allotment to mo of $16 per month
through the Bureau of War-Risk In
surance under the above allotment
number. I hereby make application
for a family allowance of $25 per
month for myself and the above-named
brothers and sister in accordance with
the war-risk insurance, law.

If the applicant was not previously
dependent, but has recently, become so,
substitute for the body of the letter
other wording, which might read as
Mary Hunter Smith, being duly
sworn, deposes and says :I am the
mother of the above named enlisted
man. I have become wholly depend
ent upon him by reason . of the death
ot my only other child, James Smith,
upon whom I was wholly dependent
fofr support until his death on August
4, 1918. The above-named enlisted
man made an allotment to me of $15
a'month through the War-Risk Insur
ance Bureau under the above allot
ment number. I hereby make appli
cation for a family allowance of $10
per month, in accordance with the war-
risk insurance law.
A separate application in the above
affidavit form must be filed for each
adult for whom an allowance is re
quested. Thus the man's father can
not file an application on behalf of
both himself and wife. A separate
affidavit from each is required. But
a mother may apply for both herself
and minor children, and one award
will be made for all.
The affidavit of the dependent in
each case must be supported by alii
davits of two or more persons who
have knowledge of the extent of the
habitual contribution or of the fact
that the dependency has recently a
risen The body of such an affidavit
might read as follows:
Henry Jones, of 730 West Thirteenth
Street, New York City, being duly
sworn, deposes and says: I have
known the above-named enlisted man
and his family, consisting of his mo
ther, Mary Hunter Smith, his brothers
George Smith and Frank SmHh, and
his sister, Elizabeth Smith, for five
years last past. I know that before
the above-named enlisted man enter
ed the service his mother and these
brothers and sister were wholly de
pendent upon him for support. He
was employed by me at a wage of- $80
per month. I have been informed and
veritably believe that ho contributed
.in average of $60 per month to the
support of his mother and brothers
and sister. He lived at home, and the
value of his board was probably $15
per month. I have been informed and
I veritably believe that his family had
no income from any other source ex
cept the wages which I paid him.
Notification by Bureau to the War or
If the enlisted man had made an al
lotment to the Class B dependent
through the War or Navy Department
to take the place of the form 1-B
previously filed, and the family allow
ance is thereafter granted upon" re
ceipt of the affidavits above described,
the Bureau of War-Risk Insurance will
notify such allotting office that the
bureau will thereafter pay the requi
site allotment and the family allow
ance accompanying it. The payment
of the allotment by the Bureau of War-
Risk Insurance In that case will begin
from the last payment made through
the War or Navy Department.
