This morning I thought about how much family caregivers save the family and taxpayers money by providing full-time care for parents. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a place that FT caregivers could register and receive SS credit for their service? That would take so much of the financial burden off of caregivers. But then I realized that it probably would not be doable. How could you give an caregiver for elders credit without having to also give stay-at-home mothers credit? Maybe by a doctor writing that without the caregiver, the person would have had to enter a NH.
Really, SS credit even if reported at minimum wage would be helpful to many.
