In September 2014, the VA decided that my Mom was entitled to aid and attendance, and proposed a finding of incompetency. The monthly payments began, but there is a couple months "back pay" (about $1200.00) that she is owed. I understand that can't be paid until I am appointed her fiduciary. I made the mistake of not checking up on that process, and a year went by. I learned last fall that the VA had done nothing to even begin the fiduciary process. Now they say that the process finally began on December 11, 2015. My last call to the VA was totally unsatisfying -- they would tell me nothing about where things go from here or any time frame for this getting resolved. Is it time for me to contact my member of Congress? Is there anything else I can do? Thanks.
