This is in Kansas. My grandfather passed late last year, and my mother couldn't afford his house and didn't want to risk it going to Medicaid for no good reason, so she disclaimed the inheritance, including the money. The intention was that should would trust her brother to give me the money portion, which I intended to spend on her like I would had she elected a special needs trust. And they did send me some of the money, which I have spent some of on her. However, we then found out that my grandfather had the deed to the house auto-transfer to her on his death. And in researching her option of using a quitclaim we found that SSI counts the inheritance whether she accepts it or not. Further, we're worried that having spent the money on her could count as fraud. We stopped any such spending or exchange of money immediately. How to fix this? Can we just buy a 3rd party special needs trust? Just let SSI know what's happened and hoping they don't go on a witch hunt? Has there been fraud committed? If we hire an elder law attorney to help navigate all of this would they be obligated to report said fraud?
