I'd be a little concerned with a significant or 100% PTSD rating. As a possible precaution, I'd talk to a lawyer and possibly a doctor concerning competency to manage your own affairs, and in the event that you become incapacitated, appoint someone you trust to manage them. Ideally, getting a federal district court to declare that you are competent to manage your own affairs. (Difficult to get to happen.)

State laws differ, and generally federal law may defer to state laws. The VA has recently come under fire for it's extremely poor practices in it's fiduciary program. Waco Tx in particular.

Another issue may be to have a bank account in one bank that you deposit VA checks into, and move the money as cash to another bank and account as soon as possible.

Many people do not know that an automatic deposit arrangement also (due to the banking laws) automatically authorizes the depositor to withdraw funds as well as deposit them.

The VA has been known to be indiscriminate, and seize control of all a veteran's accounts at the same bank, under the fiduciary program. If that should happen, a veteran can be in for a heck of a legal fight.

If the VA suddenly decides you are not competent to manage your own affairs, recourse exists in law, but in practice, seems very difficult and time consuming to obtain.

Hopefully, the C&P examiner mentioned somewhere that she considered you to be competent to manage your own affairs.

I think that your chances are good but most of the C&P Docs do not have a clue about what ratings will do.

I am 100% P&T and competent to manage my money by VA but not by wife nor family. :tongue:

  • 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.
