My father died in Feb. 2012. My mother draws from him so now she receives his SS. I should be happy her income doubled but WRONG it will cost her to receive the benefits she was receiving. She had caregiving and meds paid for now it will cost her more to get these every month than what she received in her increase in SS, She will have less to actually live on. We were also looking into long term care and now they say she doesn't qualify because of the over limit amount of 102.00. She has dementia and is losing her ability to walk, and has nothing other than her SS. Any advise??
