Dr, King's quote there today is very appropriate to this subject.

This can happen to ANY Veteran-

they are even questioning fiduciary family members.

I think felonies have been committed by some VA appointed fiduciaries.

I hope Rosinski and Eagle (attorneys for vets) can start a class action against VA on this.

There are probably vets right this minute thinking someone is acting in their behalf as their fiduciary for their VA comp-

but they might have been scammed already.

ANY vet could be in this predicament.

If you need to obtain an IMO for any MH SC make sure the IMO doc states yo are COMPETENT to stave off this fiduciary Bull crap.

WHat gets me is that the new PTSD regs will not even cnsider an IMO that diagnoses PTSD and could contain the competence statement.

These things dont happen in a vacuum.

VA could propose incomepetency for any PTSD vet awarded under the new regs.

The new regs might not provide much PTSD retro but think about it-

any PTSD future comp could be threatened by an incompetence proposal.

This stuff is as bad as Shreddergate if not worse.

Worse, it seems the VA can ignore court determinations of competency, and court assignment of a fiduciary. This is hardly "due process".

It's past time that this issue is given the attention in both the courts and congress that it cries for.

The real problem is the so called process for appointing a fiduciary and leaving it up to the VA to decide who is fiduciary. In WACO they are appointing people who used to work for or have a connection to people working at the VA.

There used to be a Hadit Member that said the fiduciary the VA appointed him would not allow him to have cable TV and no cash for incidentals. Every thing he had to do had to be approved and he felt like he was a prisoner of the VA system.

NOVA has filed a Petition at the Court and Doug Rosinski has filed a Mandamus Writ with the court:

both filings are here today :


Competency in most state courts is a legal issue. I dont know how VA even got into the business of competency.

Their incompetency declarations are only limited to VA issues but still-

this allows them to take advantage of disabled vets.

I heard some VA employees were asking vets in VA nursing homes to name them in wills as beneficiaries.

I don't know if that is true at all.

I would think it could be possible.

Chuck is right-this violates DUE process as well as being utterly unconscionable.

It will be interesting to see how the court handles the above 2 petitions.

I personally think any adversely affected vet should SUE their fiduciary.

But then again- how can a severely disabled vet do that? Their money for legal expenses is tied up with the VA appointed fiduciary!

This situation looks like downright theft and coercion on VA's part.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    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?

    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
