Mother has a $25.000.00 life insurance policy that goes to me when she passes. It has an approximate cash value of $7400.00. Will medicaid require us to "cash it out" before she can qualify?

Brain fart --- is mom the "owner" of her policy? If she is, then the cash value is an asset and she (you) will have to do a spend-down for the whole amount. BUT if mom DOES NOT OWN the policy, then it is not her asset. Get the policy and review it.

Yes.

If the agent is still around, I'd call him asap to see what will be required to cash out and if there will be a penalty. The agency contact info should be on the face page of the policy. Good luck.
