REMARKS INSTRUCTIONS: PLEASE READ BEFORE COMPLETING FORM The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) requests your assistance in providing the information on this form. Please return the form as soon as possible to DOL in the envelope provided. The information you give us will be used to determine whether your patient (or former patient), identified on the front of the form, has a mental or physical impairment which prevents the management of Black Lung benefits in that patient's best interests. If the patient is determined to be incapable of managing benefits, DOL will normally appoint a representative payee to receive and use benefits on behalf of the individual. For DOL purposes, incapability means a beneficiary age 18 or older is dependent on others to provide protection of interests and daily needs -such as food, clothing and shelter. Examples of impairments causing incapability include severe mental retardation that has made the beneficiary dependent on others since birth, senility or forgetfulness resulting from advancing age, schizophrenia and other mental health problems and severe physical impairments that prevent the beneficiary from not only managing funds, but also directing others as to how to manage them. The completed form should show the nature of the patient's impairment, if any, and, based on an examination conducted within the 1-year period prior to the date you complete this form, your opinion as to the patient's capability to manage monthly Black Lung benefit payments. If you have not examined the patient within the past year and if the patient has not made an appointment for an examination, please complete as many questions on the form as you deem advisable. We will use such information, along with other evidence we receive, to determine whether direct or representative payment will serve the patient's best interests. Please sign and date the form before returning it. Note: Persons are not required to respond to this collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
