Questions were raised concerning the timeliness of a Retired Serviceman's Family Protection Plan annuity claim filed by a deceased Air Force officer's mentally incapacitated adult daughter. GAO held that the time period for filing the claim was satisfied by the claimant's custodian, pending the appointment of the claimant's guardian. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
