I set my mother up with a Medicaid Pooled Trust (New York) that collects her SSI (SSDI?) overage (spend down?) of $301 a month to be used on bills, expenses and travel, etc. I'm her POA and have assisted her in paying for phone, cable, electricity, etc., and it has worked out very well for her and I'm worried less about missing and unpaid bills. How will having this type of trust affect us seeking ALPs beds for her in the near future? Will she keep paying $301/month even after the facilities receives her SSI payments? I assume they get every penny, so I think not. Would the trust then dissolve? Would the remaining balance go back into the pooled trust to Medicaid?
