For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.





Just wantr to make sure I understand this right. I'll try to explain.

You have received your granted award decision and sent Karl a copy. Yes I sent him a copy and then talked to him on the phone and I explained my situation & said "R2 would be nice" & to me he seemed to not understand what I was talking about."

He also asked me where I was at & I said "Missouri" & he's in NJ & he said "He really didn't want to have to come that far for a hearing & he could get me in touch with some one near me"

The way that sounds is he wanted to give me to a Lawyer around here & if the guy won my case he could make a couple of bucks. I was in my own business & understand how this works. So, I suppose he doesn't think this one would be a SLAM DUNK so he passes it off & may make a buck. So, I contacted a different Lawyer that I am more comfortable with ( Clark Evan's Sister in Law told me about him)

The decision states you must have a fiduciary. The letter states the RO is wanting to certify me as incompetent and if this happens the a fiduciary would be needed. They got from a VA Psychologist who said I couldn't handle my own money. I really don't any way as my Wife has always handled the bills & such & all I did was make the money. HA

You would rather not have a fiduciary but if it must be then you want them

to appoint your wife.

Is this all correct ? Yes, I would have no problem with her being listed as such but I'll be damned if I want some person I don't know handling my money & giving me an allowance or what ever they do. The only thing that peeves me off is if it goes this way (If I was to win) was every penny would have to be accounted for

Do you want to argue the point that you do not need a fiduciary ? At the present NO as I believe it may be of help in my claim I have going for a higher rating> What do U think? Also, I have a bit of a problem with Authority Figures ( Which I would see anyone except my Wife as such) & May sound dumb but just the way I feel

But, I would sincerly appreciate any information U could give me concerning this matter.

Here I am.....gdsnide@hotmail.com

Thank U very much for the response & if U have any questions U need to ask just E Mail me

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.


    Leading to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?


    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
