They ruled you incompetent which, if unjustified as you believe, can lead to many negative things.

The good news is you can appeal that decision. Get your treating docs to write a statement saying they don't believe you are incompetent.

I wouldnt worry about it, unless you are single. The SSDI people said that I could not handle my finances 2 years ago, so my wife is my Power of Attorney. No biggy for me as I have a great wife and do not worry about her running off with my pennies. Alot of times the VA Docs will either state this due to something you may have said by accident, or they feel that you truly are bad enough to have someone step in and take care of your money. Wish you the best and keep us posted. God Bless

I disagree, always be concerned and proactive when it comes to a VA Fiduciary Appointment Notification. You should be afforded an in-home appointment with a VA Fiduciary Social Worker at some point in the near future.

I take it you haven't Appealed the Fiduciary Appointment, correct?  You can request that the VA Appoint a Trusted Friend or Relative to serve as your Fiduciary. Keep in mind, they must meet all VA Fiduciary Qualifications, including there own Financial Fitness. There's an Old Saying, "The best way to lose Friends and Relatives, is to lone money." Having a friend or relative act as your Fiduciary is not without certain pitfalls.

Yes last comment i agree no i'm currently waiting and checking ebenefits dialy.. No i told him that i handle my money well, i am well aware of the problems that can come and always tell them.. i am in vietnam so maybe that.. but he said I could possibly handle it because of my memory and im bipolar and I could.. not that i'm doing he stated a possible situation.. I have uploaded a copy of my bank account showwing I am not living pay check to pay check and can handle my money.

I am single and i will fight it and see what happens.. I do need help around the place and filed for aid and attandance but I dont need somoen helping themself to my money.. again agree with last guy.. i dont trust people with my money or loand money.. good way lose friends and family.. and noone can say they dont know of a case family and friends people get really weird over money in life. sad but true

    • 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.
