Today I will be talking to investigative journalist Janet Phelan about conservatorships in the USA.
A fascinating thing is going on right now in terms of Judiciary Committee meeting in DC with regards to guardianships. The Office on Aging in conjunction with some other federal agencies is advocating removing privacy protections so that Social Security and the VA can provide lists of beneficiaires who have “incapacity declarations” on file with those federal agencies, to provide these names to the local courts. This is a sure fire conveyor belt for more conservatorships, courtesy of what is now illegal information sharing by these federal agencies. They are trying to change the laws so that they can legally report this hitherto private info to the local state courts.
