He has a checking account into which his pension checks are deposited. Do I have authority to spend his pension funds. He gifted me that money.

Medicaid will not allow any gifting - could really mess him up.

His pension checks are almost certainly going to need to go to his Share of Cost (soc) to the NH.

Mamachick, any money the nursing home patient receives, while being on Medicaid, is suppose to go directly for that patient's care.

Sorry, I never heard of anyone gifting a pension fund.
