I searched for this particular quest. and can't find exact answer. My Dad is in nurse home, 97 yrs. old, Mom at home at 90. She draws $350 +/- s/s & Dad $850. She is paying down nursing home bill to the point of the "protected amount" that will remain hers.
She can pay household bills with the combined 350+850 but, 1) if he dies, what options does she have as a survivor to draw more than the $350?
2)with him in the home now, are there any options available?
3)are there any suggestions or unknown laws that may exist to her benefit?
Thanx, Swordpen
