C&P exam and proposed incompetent



I am so confused about the proposed incompetency and my C&P exam. I finally got a copy of my C&P exam for PTSD. How can the VA propose

Incompetency when the examiner States "Can veteran manage own affairs" Answer YES. Is it possible to get this proposal reversed with this

Information? If so what would be the next step to get this done. Thank you to all of you for your wisdom and guidance.

When did you get the VA Fiduciary Appointment notification? What did it tell you about your options and requirements regarding disputing the appointment? Have you filed a Formal Disagreement?

There has to be something in your C-File, Private or VMC Med record, where a Dr has opined regarding your ability to handle your own finances.

Something as simple as you saying your significant other, "pays all the bills and balances your checkbook, could be enough for a Rater.

My Bro-in law, VA Pension recipient, had the VA put him up for a Fiduciary because of his cancer related depression and him telling his VA Cancer Dr that his sister helped him pay his bills, big mistake.

The VA sent out a VA Fiduciary Social Worker for an in-home Fiduciary Exam. He dodged the Fiduciary Bullet, after the 3 of us explained his comment to his Dr. However, the VA Rep did require a monthly expenditure itemization, from that point on.

As it turned out, after his sister got deep in his checkbook, he had been giving his x-wife, a couple $100 each month, to take care of their dogs. A stop was put to that and she was no-longer was allowed to help him with his grocery shopping, using his debit card. A guy with stage 4 Terminal Cancer, 100lbs at the most, buying $150.00 per week in food, no way.

The VA was right, he needed a Fiduciary, starting about 2 years earlier.

Gastone you are right about the doctors. They stated in their reports that I have Dementia.

I do not have Dementia I have APHASIA. As miss Berta pointed out in an earlier post there

Is a big difference between the two. The Only doctors that said this was the VA doctors. True

I can not carry on a conversation that makes sense to anyone but my family. My wife has to

Tell the doctors what I am trying to say. They don't understand why I can tell them my date of

Birth without any difficulty, but cannot answer their questions in a sensible sentence. I have

Never been asked any questions about who pays the bills in our household. Maybe you are right

The VA had some reason for this. I just don't like being labeled incompetent when I believe I am

Not I was told that the fiduciary is not required to submit periodic accountings to VA. Maybe I

Should just let this go and accept what the VA has proposed. Cannot remember exact date of

Notification but it was in March. Thanks for your reply and your time.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
