CDIA filed a comment with the VA in response to its Jan. 3, 2014 proposed rule concerning the appointment of fiduciaries. Our comment encouraged the VA to (1) go beyond the ten-year look-back period to determine who can serve as a fiduciary for a veteran; and (2) not just limit disqualifying offenses to those noted below, but perhaps include other crimes of dishonesty and deception. A final rule was issued in July 2018.
