:evil: Has the VA told anyone they were incompetent? And they wouldn't pay them directly? What can I do ?

This is one of those catch 22s the VA is famous for. IF you are competent and can manage your finances, then you won't get as much compensation.

I'm not sure I have any good advice for ya ... have you spoken with a Veterans Service Officer with one of the Veterans Groups?

Sorry I can't answer your question but here are my experiences with the VA.
I felt like the doctors thought I was just looking for free or cheap drugs. I now totally use my wife's health insurance through her job, and I see a sympathetic civilian doctor. I rarely got a "live" human on the phone when I called the VA to make appointments. It took 13 days once for them to call me back and set up an appointment.
In August of 2004 I went to the VA hospital in Iowa City, IA to get some tests done for my GWS complaints. They ran two CAT scans, X-rays, etc. and then billed my wife's heath insurance, who paid them thousands of dollars!!! I couldn't believe it!!! So much for my 22 years of service to my country.
Anyway, make calls to anyone of possible help. Is there a politician in your area who is sympathetic to veterans? If you can afford not to use the VA, then don't. Sorry I couldn't help much, but I do understand.

I get disability for PTSD from the VA and the SSA.


VA pays me directly, I'm competent.
SSA, pays my payee. I'm incompetent.

Go figure.
