My mom is in a nursing home. She has been approved for Medicaid. And now her social security check will increase because Medicaid will be paying her Medicare premium. Her actual benefit amount won't change. But the dollar amount of her check will. Medicaid requires any income changes be reported. Is this something that needs to be reported? We are going to make the NH her payee for her SS but that won't start until after next month. Is this considered a change that needs reported since her actual benefit not including deductions is the same as before? Thanks.
