Veterans and declaring someone incompetent
Should the VA (Veterans Administration) have the power to just declare someone incompetent?
From a VA malpractice attorney: You may be declared incompetent to manage your own finances during a simple C & P exam! If the examiner asks you who handles the bills in your home and you reply that you let your spouse do all that, the examiner may write a brief note: "Veteran is not competent to handle his financial affairs."
Then they hold all further payments until you can assign a fiduciary, which by all accounts is a very long, drawn out ,hard process.
To me it seems there are not checks and balances to this system that will prevent misuse of the practice.
