Willy, the VA has its own form; you can either research the VA's web site or contact them. When I was discussing application for health care benefits, I raised the issue and the VA sent me a form directly.

So, it will recognize the authority of a POA, but on its own forms.

Your father does not need to be adjudged incompetent for you to have DPOA authority with the VA.

I'm my dad's fiduciary thru the VA. His disability benefits now come in my name. The VA has its own fiduciary branch. You will need to have the MD review and assess to deem your loved one incompetent and submit to social work/case management review. It's a process.

Willy, what are your goals in becoming fiduciary? If you're proxy under a DPOA, you already have that potential capacity, depending on how the DPOA is worded and when you can act under it.

Are you asking about filing for VA benefits? What are your specific concerns?
