I received confirmation of my appointment as the Federal Fiduciary for my father (WWII vet, age 91) in the mail today. The Incompentency Notice Response and my Statement in Support of Claim requesting to be named as fiduciary was mailed the 1st week in January. In mid February we received notice from the VA that they had determined that my father was not competent. We had the interview with the VA Field Examiner on August 20th. By the way, the gentleman who interviewed me actually works in Kentucky, but was in Alabama to do interviews because of the backlog in cases. Thanks to Debbie and this website for getting me started on this journey in July 2011 and for the support to see me through all the paperwork involved.
