My 93-year-old dad had a stroke in November of 2016. He is now on Medicaid. We applied for VA benefits in January of 2017. I just noticed that the VA started sending his $700 benefits to his checking account. I also have a special needs sister that lives in my dad's house that receives SSI. This extra money will help pay for house insurance, taxes and upkeep on the house. Do I need to report the VA benefits to Medicaid?
