Form 21-22a
« on: June 23, 2011, 05:05:30 PM »

Hello again,

Thank you again for your help with my previous questions concerning forms 21-0845 & 21-4138.

Today I came accross form 21-22a to be appointed as a claimant's (my mother) representative.
Is this a viable avenue to pursue given my mom's pronounced dementia?
I've had recorded DPOA since 2006.

Thanks so much.
Wendy

No.  The purpose of this form has been replaced by the 21-0845.  This will come into play later when you file to be appointed as her Fiduciary.

For now you just do the 21-0845 so the VA can discuss the application and staus with you.

form 21-0845 is AUTHORIZATION TO DISCLOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION TO A THIRD PARTY

form 21-22a is   APPOINTMENT OF VETERANS SERVICE ORGANIZATION AS CLAIMANT'S REPRESENTATIVE

I'm looking for expediting after VA claims Mom is incompetent.

DO NOT do the 21-22a. 

You simply reply to the letter they sent.

Once you receive notification from the VA that they find it necessary for a fiduciary to be appointed you should submit Form 21-4138 and include the following statement:

Please be advised that (parent's name) and I have no issue with the VA finding of incompetence and wish to proceed with the appointment of a fiduciary. We wish to appoint myself (her/his insert your relationship to the veteran) as fiduciary. I understand that I must be interviewed prior to that appointment and would appreciate such an interview be scheduled as soon as possible.

My Mom can't see at all (she's legally blind), and I need to fill out all the forms on her behalf.  I'm a lawyer (although I do real estate law - not this stuff) - can I/should I use the Form 21-22a to be able to take over the processing for her instead of the 21-0845?  Many thanks for your advice

At this time, I would just do the 21-0845 so that you have the ability to speak with the VA regarding her application.

In completing the paperwork for her, she still needs to sign everything.
