If something happens to my mom, can I still collect her Social Security check being that she lives with me and I took care of her?
My mom came to live with me 10 years ago. Since then I have been taking care of her. I am not well myself, but I do the best I can. She is a lot of company for me.
We both get SS and we live off of that. Since I take care of her I'm not working and depend on her check and mine to pay the bills and our expenses. If something happens to her, her check will stop and I will not be able to pay the expenses with my SS check alone. Is there anyway that SS might let me still collect her check being that I am her daughter and took care of her?
