Happily, we just received a letter awarding the full A&A amount to my MIL. Now brings the follow-up questions. Because our application (and doctor's statement) said she could not manage her financial affairs, the award letter states that back payment (retroactive to Jan. 1, 2014) would be paid upon appointment of a fiduciary. An enclosure letter says she can send additional information (to the Indianapolis Fiduciary Hub) before they decide whether to appoint a fiduciary. In our A&A application, we'd submitted VA form 21-0845 giving me the authority to discuss her case with the VA. Does that mean I'll be appointed? She wants either my husband or me to be her fiduciary, but the VA letter does not say she can nominate someone to do so. What do we do now? Do we write that in a letter or the enclosed VA 21-4138 (statement in support of claim)? I appreciate your advice on our next step in this process. Thanks!
