What does Form VA 21-2680 mean?
Form VA 21-2680 is used to file a claim of nonfiscal compensation for the period of employment of a covered veteran as a qualified employee in the national service under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act or the Veterans' Preference Act. Form VA 21-2680 does not cover the period when a covered individual is not employed as a qualified employee for any other federal civilian agency.
Filed on or before April 21, 1990. An employee's period of employment is considered to be the entire period of employment that the individual served with a covered organization unless terminated for cause.
Filed on or after March 31 of the given year.
The total of all payments in excess of actual and reasonable expenses incurred during the period of employment (excluding payments for vacation and sick leave).
The period covered for each pay period, unless the period is in a nonpayment period.
The length of the period used when calculating the total amount of nonfiscal compensation.
Whether payments are made in U.S. dollars or the veteran's local currency, and whether such payments are reported correctly. If they are properly reported and paid back to the veteran's home country, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will correct a payment, but the individual is responsible for ensuring that the correct amount of nonfiscal compensation is being paid, to the national service, of the United States under either the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act or the Veterans' Preference Act.
Who should complete Form VA 21-2680?
The form VA 21-2680 should be completed by a person who has obtained a permanent resident card for an alien who resides in the U.S.
If the alien is still living with their spouse, they must complete Form SS-8, Application for Alien Relative, even if they were living separately when their spouse was granted U.S. resident status.
If the alien has not yet obtained a U.S. resident card, they must complete Form SS-8.
The Form VA 21-2680 also must be completed by:
A parent if the alien has another parent from the same marriage present in the U.S. in addition to the alien.
A grandparent if the alien has another grandparent from the same marriage present in the U.S.
A grandchild if the alien has another grandchild from the same marriage present in the U.S.
If the alien has not yet obtained a permanent resident card, they must complete Form SS-8 as described above.
If the alien has not yet obtained a green card, they should complete another form, such as Form I-551, Application for Employment Authorization, that establishes this eligibility until they have obtained a green card based on employment authorization documents.
Note: The above information does not apply to a family member who received a refugee or asylum status determination or a refugee or asylum petition and has been granted refugee or asylum status. These individuals will not have a U.S. resident alien card and should receive a Form SS-8 (see example above) with the necessary information for an immigration benefit.

What documents do I need to attach to my Form VA 21-2680?
You need to attach only one of the following documents for each child's claim: the original identification, the original birth certificate, or the child's amended birth certificate, together with a copy of the original statement and the identification. In addition, as shown in the table below, you must attach at least one of the following documents for each child, in addition to the identification:
the Social Security number of the applicant or petitioner if he or she had one at the time of the adoption;
the statement of birth that shows the date the identification was issued by the State;
if the identification was an amended birth certificate, a photocopy of the amended birth certificate;
certification that is signed by a licensed practitioner who attests to the statement, signed by the birth mother or the child's legal guardian, or
a statement, signed by the birth mother or the child's legal guardian, that verifies that the identification is valid
How do I attach all of these documents?
You attach a copy of each of these documents to Form VA 21-2680. Each document must be printed in its entirety.
When do I need to attach the birth certificate?
You should attach Form VA 21-2680 as soon as possible after an approved adoption. The first identification issued must be a birth certificate that shows a date of birth for a child who was adopted after birth, and not the birth certificate of a stillborn child. If the identification shows the date of birth for a stillborn child but for whom a certificate has not been issued, the identity must be verified by the identification document, provided the record for a stillborn child already exists on file. If an identification is issued after a stillbirth and before the child is born, then the identity of the family of the biological mother is not necessarily established. An amended birth certificate may be used, since it confirms the date of birth by the filing of an amended birth certificate that indicates the birth of the child after birth. If the person responsible for the adoption is deceased, the identity of the biological parents should be verified by a copy of the death certificate of the adoptive parents, including both the date of issuance and the year, make, and model of the vehicle registered to each person named in the death certificate.
A photocopy of the certificate of adoption must also be added to the identity document, along with other supporting documents, for every child adopted after death.

Is there a due date for Form VA 21-2680?
If not, when must I file?
You may file a Form VA 21-2680 for your return for the year in which you receive disability compensation, unless you are filing a joint return. You did not receive disability compensation, and you are not filing a joint return, you may file Form VA 21-2680 for your return for the year before that in which you received disability compensation.
Furthermore, you may also file Form VA 21-2680 for either individual (or spouse, if filing jointly) if you did not receive disability compensation for the 2017 taxable year, and you need your income for figuring your Social Security and Medicare benefits. For this purpose, you must use Form SS-8, “Social Security and Medicare Wages and Other Income” (or Form SS-8, “Social Security and Other Employment Income”) to figure your income and report that information on Form 1040 (or Form 1040NR) for your tax return for the year you received your disability compensation.
Example. Joseph and Jane married in August 2017. Joseph receives 1,000 of disability compensation. (Based on Form 810, “Report of Disability”). Jane also receives 1,000 of disability compensation. (Based on Form 810, “Report of Disability and Other Income”). Jane files a joint return for their 2017 taxable year. Because the individual filed for disability benefits early, Jane uses Form 810, “Report of Disability” as an adjustment to their gross income in their 2017 tax return. Joseph files a separate return for 2017. Joseph uses Form 810, “Report of Disability” as an adjustment to Joseph's income in 2017. They file separate returns for 2017. Joe and Jane use Form VA 21-2680 for their 2017 taxable year filing. Joseph receives 1,000 in disability compensation. (Effective January 5th, 2018, Form 1250, “Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRA) Income of a Survivor”)
Can I use Form 1040X to figure my adjusted gross income (AGI) on my Social Security and Medicare?
Are there special rules if my disability compensation is a lump-sum amount (you get a check)?
Yes. If you use Form 1040X to claim a lump-sum amount of your disability compensation, you must figure your AGI on Form 1040 (or Form 1040NR).
