If Medicaid is paying for her care the answer is yes. Since I knew my Mom would be in the NH for the rest of her life, I allowed the NH to become payees for her SS and pension.

All her monthly income is subject to be used for her copay or SOC (share of cost) required by Medicaid.

If she has any recurring debts - like credit cards, life insurance policy payment, auto or property costs - all those she will default on unless family want to pay for them out of a sense of familial duty on her behalf.
