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

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
