I am my father's POA and in Nov., 2011, I sold my parents home. They received A& A starting in May of 2011 and I was advised to place house funds in a Trust Upon Death under my name, then moved these funds to a savings under my name. All monies are used for care of mom and dad both with their joint A & A benefit. The banks advised me how to set up accounts so as not to cause problems with their benefit. They had and have limited funds and at that time, we couldn't risk the loss of their benefit. Now, I am applying for my father for Medicaid. He is 87 with hospice and Alzheimer's and served proudly in WW II in the Army. Medicaid is questioning why a recipient wouldn't have a large savings account under their name due to sell of home. It was recommended by the banks, on-line sights and a gentleman that volunteered to help me apply. I have faithfully been their POA, 4 hours away and drive out every other month for extended visits, stay at hotels etc. I pay all my own expenses, of course. Comments please to assist me?
