How do I become a fiduciary?

VA’s Fiduciary Program oversees financial management of VA benefit payments to beneficiaries who are incapable of managing their funds. Generally, a family member or friend serves as fiduciary. When friends and family are not available, VA looks for qualified individuals or organizations to serve as a fiduciary. If you are interested in serving as a fiduciary for a family member or friend, please submit a request with the beneficiary’s name and VA file number, and your name and contact information to the VA Regional Office nearest you. You may obtain the address of the office nearest you by calling (800) 827-1000. Please provide the reason you are requesting appointment as fiduciary as well as medical evidence if available. If you are interested in becoming a professional fiduciary, submit your resume with cover letter to the following e-mail address: VA_Fiduciary@va.gov. Also, provide your name, mailing address, name of organization (if any) and e-mail id along with your request.
