Fiduciary Information

Question

Hi, Yesterday I was appointed as fiduciary for my grandfather who has slight dementia. Although things were working fine the way the have always been the va decided that this needs to be more legal than a poa. So, they appointed me fiduciary. My only issue with this is that they say I am not allowed to make cash withdrawls at all. How do I give him his spending money now? I normally make sure that he has about 40 dollars or so in his wallet at all times for spending money. All of the rest of the bills I always pay. I do his shopping, and ect..

Also, since I do accounting work, he asks me to be a fiduciary for other veterans who don't have family. While, I believe this was nice of him to offer, I feel nervous about this, for one, why can't I give out cash. If you have a fiduciary, or know of anyone with one, how do they recieve their spending money? I would hate to make someone suffer without funds. I mean, everyone needs cash sometimes, and I would hate for them to go without. I have read that their are unscrupulous people who steal from their vets, but, really, If I did this, it would be to help. I wouldn't every mess with someone else's money. How does it work? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks:blush:

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
