Questions During A C&p Exam

Question

Which has the most weght in a claim for mental disorders, a Phd. Psychologist, or GP?

Had the Phd. give a favorable C&P.

nine months later, another C&P by a GP, who asked a series of questions like "could you handle receiving a large amount of money given to you?", and can you cook yourself a meal? Can you handle reconciling your checkbook?

I've never had an exam like this before.

Does anyone know what the point was, had one like this, etc?

Thanks,

Yup. The "point" of the latest "exam" was to determine whether you were "mentally competent" to handle your own affairs, or whether they should "appoint" a fiduciary, someone to take care of your finances. IN CASE YOU SHOULD RECEIVE A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY, SUDDENLY!! :D :D :D

He looking into your ability to take of yourself and managing your finances. It one of the points of the seriousness of your rating. Thats my opinion, others will chime in

Larry, Did you have a simular C&P exam?

The GP told me that the questions might sound strange, but there was a valid reason for them.

First thing to come to my mind was, going back to 3K lock up! Then, that the exam was to downplay my symptoms, and lowball, or deny my claim.

With direct deposit having a fiduciary would really only be paperwork, other than the legal aspect.

Thanks,

Au contraire, my dear boondocker.

For, if'n they find you "incompetent", then they do not send the money to you (or your bank account), but, instead, to your fiduciary-type person. That's the point in having one, so's you can't get your grubby, mentally-incompetent hands on it.

But, that is something that they very, very seldom do, declare someone incompetent (otherwise, what's their excuse with ME.....he-he)!

It is something that they do to make sure that you don't get a large sum of money and go, say, and buy a new Mercedes.........like an SLK (man, I'll tell ya, that one that I got, it's one fas...............), er, ahhhh........well, hell, some incompetents will, obviously, slip through their fingers! :D

:D

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
