    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

Fiduciary Appointment ?'s

Recommended Posts

my wife and I have been reading this forum for some time and got alot of info. Thanks to everyone for the great threads. I was rated 100% TBI Sept 2009 ( back pay to sept 2008) with a proposed incompetency. I requested that my wife of 25 years be appointed. 9 months and we have not heard anything. we call the 1-800 and they tell us it is being worked on and the fiduciary office will be calling (9 months of waiting) to set up field exam. Is there anyone i can email or call that can help us. we ask for monthly benefits to be released while we are waiting for them to come out to the house and a lady from atlanta office called stated no money was going to be released until after the field exam. I need somebody that can help me with the situation. thanks

This is an outrage-

do you have a vet rep?

You could file a complaint with them using the IRIS system at the VA web site.

The VA fiduciary program has had so many problems lately (see VA Watchdog.com) that maybe a complaint would help instead of a status request.

Who is your COngressman/woman?

I fell as Berta does.................this is one instance wherein a little "Congresscritter Inquiry" would be most beneficial. Call your local office of your US Senator and ask to speak to the person who helps the vets.

thanks for the advice. We will file a complaint. since my congressman seat is vacant and voting is next week. we will try senator saxby chambliss and see if he can help. what about house committee on veterans affairs? could they help.

You could also write to:

Congressman John Hall NY-

Chairman -House VAC Subcommittee on Disability and Memorial Affairs

http://veterans.house.gov/hearings/hearing.aspx?NewsID=567

(He is COngressman up here n NY- but use the Sub Committee's House VAC address in DC at the site):

http://veterans.house.gov/hearings/hearing.aspx?NewsID=567

Send Bradley Mayes (VA C & P) a copy of the letter.

The VA Fiduciary program is a mess and they should know from veterans themselves how long it is taking the VA to pay vets who have been declared incompetent.

And/or call your Senator's veteran's liason-

I would do it all if I were you-this is ridiculous.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
