We just had our fiduciary meeting with the VA field representative yesterday. All seemed to go smoothly. We met at the Assisted Living facility where my FIL resides - its only a few miles from our home. The VA Rep asked my father in law the basic cognitive questions like - what city are you in?; Who is the President of the US?; What is today's date or day of the week?; How tall are you? - He knew none of those. My wife gave him info on his finances as well as ours, as well as a copy of the court guardianship papers for my FIL showing my wife as his legal guardian. The VA rep said that it would take a month for his report to be written, processed and filed. Then it would take one to two months for the check covering the back payments to be issued. So we should have that check within around 3 months time. He has been getting the regular monthly benefits since March. Thanks again Debbie for this excellent website which has helped us get through the whole Aid and Attendance process.
