    After a long waiting process my mother was approved and received her Award letter and now is getting her monthly A&A. But with all the wait changes have taken place and she had to go into a nursing home one month before she was approved. As I wait for my call for the Fiduciary appointment I wander what happens if she passes away before all is done. I was told that since she got the Award letter the money is hers and would be part of her estate is that the way it works ??

    That is not true. Accrued unpaid benefits do not go to the applicant's estate.

    Any unpaid funds can be filed against by any family member who personally paid out of their pocket expenses related to the care of the applicant.

    Information on this can be found on our site under the FAQ section.
