My husband had to go into a nursing home while I was operating as his payee. I rely on his SS income to pay for my rent, health and other necessities because my SS in not enough. I paid roughly $2500 towards his expenses while in the nursing home, whereas, his income was around $16000. The SS administration was asking what I did with the difference so I wrote them a letter explaining my situation. I have yet to hear back from them. I am concerned they may require the difference. Does anyone have any advice that could help me alleviate this issue? Thank you!
