Can she gift the car to one of the children. I have asked lawyers and elder care agency and they say we can, but I want to make sure Iwe are doing it correctly.

Hi KC,
I think you can trust the attorney. Since Medicaid laws are different in every state, you were truly wise to discuss this with a qualified professional in the field. Now that you've done that, there shouldn't be anything to worry about. If the attorney suggests any special type of paperwork, do it the way he or she suggests.

Take care and please check back with any questions. We can support you even if we recommend seeking legal help.

How many times on this forum have people been told to check with an attorney before they take some action? You've done that. So, if on this forum you got opposing views, what would you do? If the car is now titled in mom's name, she's entitled to one car, and if she wants to give it away, ok. Next question.

Talk to her caseworker about how it affects her benefits. Much depends on how much the car was worth.

Pam, your thought was mine. This is something I would double-check with the caseworker. The attorney and elder care people say it is fine, it should be.
