How Do I Become a Fiduciary?
- the beneficiary‘s name and VA file number, and
- your name and contact information
To become a professional fiduciary, submit your resume with cover letter to the following e-mail address: VA_Fiduciary@va.gov. Include your name, the name of your organization (if applicable), mailing address, and e-mail address with your request.
Prospective fiduciaries must undergo an investigation of their suitability to serve. This investigation includes:
- a criminal background check,
- review of your credit report,
- personal interview, and
- recommendations of character references.
VA will appoint a fiduciary to manage a beneficiary’s VA benefits only after a complete investigation.
Veterans lose the right to own firearms when they are assigned a VA fiduciary. If the veteran you will serve could still be a responsible gun owner and you wish to assist them in restoring that right, continue our guide to the NICS Relief Program.
