This is about the finance department at my mother's memory care.
I just need to voice this somewhere since the woman there just does things with out telling me or when we do speak she doesnt mention things.
First - she, without my consent or knowledge took me off as being mom's payee and had her SS direct deposited into their bank.
Yes, you all said that is the way they do it- but I found it a real shock to get a letter from SS saying I was no longer her payee and not saying who was.
I told the woman about the shock (she laughed) and
we discussed that I will use her pension for the $60 personal allowance.
to pay for her med D premium, and to pay the MC balance.
Today- I get a statement from the MC
it states that SS has put the $60 personal allowance into the MC trust account.
How do I buy her things now?
Has anyone else had this lack of communication? Is this normal ?
Mom lost her SS, then gained dad's because they had been married 30yr.
But as far as I can see she still pays for Med D prescription plan premium. She is going to lose her 'extra help' qualification because she makes too much SS now that dad passed away.....
Hmm... She wouldnt be able to if she didnt have that pension though...
huh, I wonder who i should ask about that.
Sadly, there is no money to pay mortgages, rent, utilities, insurance or anything else. So when Medicaid picks up the tab, the house goes dark and cold.
Now it seems they have found a way of doing it without my consent anyways.
Dont they realize I may not HAVE the money to spend on her and that is why I had it set up with her credit card?
Yes, they told me i was part of a "team" too..... I guess I still am upstairs, but definitely not down in the offices.
