I put this in a separate post because it is boring, compared to the success story. For those who have done this, please let me know if this is correct. The VA is saying they have a finding of incompetence for my mom. OK. So what I understand is that we send in a letter saying "we accept this finding and she wishes to appoint me as fiduciary and will they please schedule an interview as soon as possible". Is there anything else we should say? Is the wording of how we say it important? If so, does someone have a copy of what they wrote? Should this be filed as a statement in support of claim with a 21-4138 form. or is just a letter OK? What else do I need to know? Will the check clear to her account ok? Is the fiduciary account just for the withheld payments, or will they want the payments they will make in a special account? I saw that EVRs are no longer going to be required every year. What kind of reporting is there instead? There are a lot of things I don't know, but I am so happy to have to learn them!
