Can a daughter sign the Vet’s application?

Absolutely, NO.

The law requires the Vet’s signature to be his/hers and does not allow someone else to sign, even a power of attorney, and even if the Vet is incompetent.

A Vets daughter cannot sign for the Veteran, the completed forms required to apply for compensation. Her father/Vet must sign his name on all of the forms (526, 21-22, 4142, 2680, etc.)
