SUBJ: Unauthorized Representation of Claimants and Unlawful Solicitation of Fees



There have been reports about individuals employed by private companies who claim to help veterans and their dependents apply for VA benefits. Some of these individuals have targeted elderly claimantsat assisted living facilities. They give claimants the impression that they are employed by VA.





Background



Some regional offices have received inquiries or complaints about individuals that were paid by assisted living facilities to "represent" veterans and other claimants with their VA benefits. These individuals lead claimants and facilities to believe they have special knowledge of VA laws and can maximize claimants' entitlement to VA benefits. Although these individuals work for private companies, they may have job titles that suggest a government connection, e.g., Veterans Benefits Analyst.
