My Dad has a irrevokable trust setup Dec 2011. I understand that this money is not hidden until 5 years has passed. As the trustee of the trust can I move money out of this to hide it in the case that Dad has to go to a nursing home (like on medicaid). Can I for instance pay my sister, who is actually taking care of them while they are now in an Assisted living home now. She does alot like setting up and taking them to doctor appt, etc. I can remove money as the trustee but how does the state or the Fed find and take this money if they go on Medicaid? How much can be withdrawen?
