All of my mother's assets were spent down, and she's now in a nursing home on Medical Assistance (Medicaid) in Minnesota. My dad is in assisted living. He has an annuity worth about $50k, and has $40k in checking. Two years ago the beneficiary of my dad's estate was changed from my mother to me. I'm wondering if my dad's money is subject still to the five year look back after he passes, or if there is anything that can be done now to protect his remaining assets. They are still married.
