And using her social security to pay bills? My Mother and i have been living together since her husband past away in 2000. She has been my dependent for several years. Sadley she took a fall November 2014 and suffered brain damage and now is in a nursing home.
Her social security income was enough to pay the mortage and condo fee. My pay was only enough to pay home bills such as cable,food, cell phs., Mom's doctor bills and meds, gas, etc, etc. I would collect all her med. bill and anything else i could use when doing our taxes. We would receive a nice return.
Soon i will have to pay the nursing home. The question! Would i be able to use my income to pay the nursing home and use her s.s. to pay for home bills in order to continue having my Mother as my dependent so we can continue receiving a nice return? In other words reverse in how the money is being used.
