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:

    • 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.
