My mother was deemed incompetent by the VA for her A & A but She received her first check of $501.00 on the 1 st of Nov 2011. The letter stated that they would not release her back pay of $6012.00. until a fudiciary had been assigned. My mother suffers from a Disease called Lewey Body Dementia and gets very agitated when having to make any kind of decisions and has hallucinations. My question is that if she is deemed incompetent why would a field rep from the VA have to interview her? The local VA office had her sign a document stating she wants me to be her fudiciary isn't that good enough? Thank you for helping me with this matter.
