I sent in application for my 85 year old father in February 2011. Since the application process can take a while. His assests will run out in about 10 months. If he doesn't recieve payments soon I will have to sell his house to pay his bills. What happens to his eligibility if I do this before the application is appoved or if I sell after he starts to recieve payments? The house is in his name and my deceased mother's name. I have POA and an the Executor of my Mother's Estate. When my Dad passes his assests will be split evenly between me and my sister. Can we sell the house and still have him quilify for the benifits? Any information or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
