    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


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


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 for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
