False Details

Military families have a lot to worry about, and one of the many concerns is what will happen if something happens to the service member. Va Form 10 10Cg helps military families prepare for the unthinkable. This form allows you to designate a guardian for your children in case something happens to you while you're on active duty. Knowing that your kids are taken care of if something happens to you can provide some peace of mind during difficult times. Make sure you complete Va Form 10 10Cg if you have young children and are active duty military personnel. The form can be found on the website for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Before you decide to complete va form 10 10cg, you'll want to know more about the type of form you are going to work with.

Definitions - For purposes of this form, the following apply:

Caregiver Support Coordinator (CSC):

A VA clinical professional who connects caregivers of Veterans with VA and community resources offering supportive programs and services. Caregiver Support Coordinators are located at every VA medical center and are designated specialists in caregiving issues.

Personal Care Services:

Care or assistance of another person necessary in order to support the eligible Veteran's health and well-being, and perform personal functions required in everyday living ensuring the eligible Veteran remains safe from hazards or dangers incident to his or her daily environment.

Representative:

A person who, under applicable law, has authority to act on behalf of the Veteran or who is legally vested with the responsibility or care of the Veteran.

Such evidence may be a valid power of attorney, legal guardianship order, or similar legal documentation or certification issued by an appropriate authority, including a Federal, State, local, or tribal law that establishes such authority.
