This site has made a hard situation a little easier. Thank you for that. I recently just met with a field examiner regarding appointing me as my mom’s fiduciary last week. My mom receives over $3000/month for a service related disability and she resides in a VA nursing home receiving hospice care. My mom has $30,000 in retro pay coming to her as well. Since the VA provides her care and she doesn’t pay for a nursing home, when she passes, will the VA want her money back? The field agent made it sound like the VA would want all of her unspent VA money, especially what was left of the retro money.
