As my SIL says, BIL was in the service, not her. Very few benefits the wife is entitled to without the husband.

No he cannot collect off his father. Was your husband a Vet during a war? Are you private pay or Medicaid? If Medicaid, VA benefits cannot be used.

Most likely, no.

Check out Medicaid for your husband and start now, it is a lengthy process. If it is possible find an elder law/Medicaid knowledgeable attorney to help you through the process. You as the spouse do not want to loose your living because of hubby needing help. An attorney will ensure you are taken care of as well.

Good luck!
