    My sister is in the process of being appointed fiduciary for my mother. Sister is concerned about opening up a separate bank account. We don't want to close the account mom's social security goes into, and most of her bills are auto-drafted from this account -- but my sister is worried about paying different bills from different accounts. What should we pay from the fiduciary account, or does it matter? I know she has to keep a separate accounting. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    It is best to have a separate account for the fiduciary, Susan. It is encouraged. That way the VA will directly deposit the money your mother gets in retroactive payments and the monthly A&A benefit to that account. Then just withdraw money from that account for your mother's needs.
