I review legal instruments and supporting documents for completeness of information, proper execution, certification and technical details. I obtain additional data or information to reconcile discrepancies to include determining whether the action sought by the party submitting the instrument corresponds with governing regulations, procedures and other criteria. This may involve searching highly specialized records to determine if any conditions exist that might stop approval.
As a LIE I am responsible for making administrative and quasi-legal decisions involving overall supervision of beneficiary estates and the protection for benefit rights. I review monetary needs of beneficiaries and adjust allowances when court action is not required. I authorize liquidation of bonds and release of funds from restricted accounts. I initiate and respond to correspondence pertaining to individual estate supervision; initiate action to have payments adjusted, suspended, resumed or recovered when appropriate.
I request field examinations on problem cases; develop missing Veteran cases; identify legal problems of action by Office of Regional Counsel opinion and actions, needed actions and legal documentation. I take prompt action to alleviate hardship, make prompt payments and assure legal and regulatory requirements are met. I have experience reviewing findings of psychiatric and/or court determinations of incompetence by means of field investigations to help arrive at independent determinations of whether or not adult VA beneficiaries have the mental capacity to handle their own funds. I process appointment field examinations and aid in fully developing material facts. I process the certification of the payee's legal right to receive and disburse incompetent beneficiaries VA benefits. After review of examination I initiate investigations into possible misuse of funds, fraud or other situations detrimental to the beneficiary's welfare.
