My dad was awarded compensation on April 4th for heart problems related to his service in Vietman. Back pay from 2010 was deposited into his account. My dad had also requested compenstion for other ailments he has. So we had another C & P exam. This week I recieved a letter proposing incompetency. What affect does that have on money already paid and awarded to him. I would like to be named the fiduciary. I have been taking care of my father for 3+ years. He lives with me. I bathe, clothe, feed, administer his meds, check vitals several times per day and work full time. He stays at home while I work, however I have friends and family members that check on him through out the day. I also call him several times a day. Not sure how to proceed. The VSO advised me to fill out a 21-4138 and ask to be fiduciary. And to have my dad sign a statement requesting that I be the fiduciary. How do I word it??? How long does this process take? What do I need to get together?
