    My mom is 90.Claim filed March 2013 and reopened in June due to decrease in income. All forms sent in and got letter stating claim is pending review, so questions are;
    1.The 2 physicians statements state mom cannot handle own affiars and has "forgetfulness", so does this mean VA will rule incomppetent even though she read and studies Bible, calls friends on phone and communicates pretty goo to be 90 1/2.
    2. If ruled incompetent, does that hold up award being activated or just the backpay portion?
    3. Should we agree with finding to speed up process and how should I respond for quickest resolution?

    any other suggestions most welcomed!! Thanks

    Just the back award, and best not to contest the ruling if they come down with incompetency.

    ok, thanks for the advice.I'm going to feellike a A&A jedi by the time I wiggle through this whole process.
    Yep, some of the other posts of people who challenged it are scary. Guess my mom could sign off appointing me the fudiciary?
