    • Am I correct to understand that Project Shad is a completely DEAD ISSUE.  I can find no current discussion anywhere.   Thanks.
    • Good point. Did you use ebenefits?  If so do you recommend it or should I mail it to them?
    • From the FOIA website: Can I ever have my request processed faster than usual or expedited? Under certain conditions you may be entitled to have your request processed on an expedited basis. There are two specific situations where a request will be expedited, which means that it is handled as soon as practicable. These two situations apply to every agency. First, a request will be expedited if the lack of expedited treatment could reasonably be expected to pose a threat to someone's life or physical safety. Second, if an individual will suffer the loss of substantial due process rights, his or her request will be expedited. Agencies can also allow expedited processing for additional reasons. The websites for each agency will provide more information on any additional standards for seeking expedited processing.
    • Gastone, Apparently, you are not getting what I am saying? first of all, the PTSD/MST and bladder are tied together.  They go hand in hand. When I had my C&P for PTSD/MST, I mentioned to the doctor, "what about my bladder C&P? are they gonna do one?"  soooooo..........what makes sense to me is, They have already decided on the PTSD, but would like the bladder C&P info to rate it for secondary, or else why wouldn't they send me for more psychological evaluation? I already mentioned that I have CLEAR markers and info from service records to indicate MST.  I think the PTSD/MST and bladder are related together.  They are waiting for an opinion about my bladder which I am already on SSDI for.  For whatever reason, they may be trying to help me tie it together.  This is what my VSO thinks as well.  I have had enough negativity in my own mind for way too long, just have to be positive at this point.
    • The reason I get travel pay for scheduled VA appointments is I live over 40 miles from the nearest VA location that can provide the needed services.  This includes eye exams, annual physicals, and even scheduled lab work I believe (although the lab is very good about taking me early if I am fasting).

Good News I Guess

We got the brown envelope. However, we get the benefits but not the money. They are holding it until they find a fiduciary to manage the money. ALL OF IT. They claim he is incompetent. Includes the 70% he was already getting. We will have to ask for every penny.

I appreciate the insurance so very much because I have not had any of my meds since December. ChampVa is the answer to a prayer.

K already got his free hunting/fishing license today. The hunting part is a hoot 'cause he is blind. Blind Rifle Association!

We're not desperate for money at all but the plan had been to pay off everything we owe with the retro. K is afraid to object as he fears they will take it all back. His claim was for TDIU but they gave him 100% P/T instead. Whats the difference?

HADIT information has been wonderful. Berta told me about Watchdogtoday.org and I read everything I could find there on fiduciary assignment. OMG, what happened to Democracy? Good intentions gone terribly wrong.

Overall, I am so glad this is finally over. Or is it? Nobody wants some stranger to have their nose in their business. Oh yes, the fiduciary gets 3% per month out of the pension. Not much except for the retro which was about $12,000. All these years I have managed K's money for nothing! I coulda made 3% too. LOL

Omg,

Can't you be appointed the fiduciary ?

Also, please clarify, is he getting VA pension (which is income limited) or VA disability compensation?

Hi Carlie, K is getting disability comp & filed for TDIU to make 100%. He did ask by letter for me to be the fiduciary just today.

VAWatchdogtoday.org has some disturbing experiences related by vets on this subject.

Congrats on the award, but this really cooks my chaps.

Omg,

I would like to know this also. Did a social worker come to visit

as you stated in your other post. If so, did you tell them that you

wanted to be fiduciary?

I'm very interested in this, because I think I may be headed down

this same road. I will be eligible for over 4 yrs of retro if approved.

There has to be a way to keep these vultures out of our pockets. There

has been too much corruption in this fiduciary fiasco, and I will not

stand by and allow someone to control the rest of the little time that I have here.

Omg,

does anyone think maybe power of attorney for a spouse would be a good quick fix to this type of problem? until the vet gets their retro..

A POA only allows someone else to act "as you, for you" but doesn't remove your ability to act for yourself. A fiduciary removes your ability to legally act for yourself and names a responsible party to act for you. Usually the VA doesn't want you to urinate your money away, due to drugs or alcohol, and requires a fiduciary to prevent this. Personally, I would fight it but the spouse can be named, if you desire. jmo
