Temporarily locating while keeping SSI &/or Medicaid?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 11/22/2020 - 11:35

A disabled friend owns a house but has to temporarily move to a different state to get treatment for a rare condition.
If she tries to relocate to that state, does she necessarily lose her SSI because of her house? Also. she wants to know if she will still be able to keep her Medicaid or will her vacant house disqualify her while
she is temporarily relocated?

What if she was to rent out her house where she could qualify for the right to work where she could keep her Medicaid?

SSI and Life Insurance Policy

My dad just reached age 65 and applied for SSI. Both my parents have life insurance policies with a cash surrender value and have named each other as the beneficiary in their policies. SSI denied my dad's claim saying the cash surrender value of my moms policy is more than $3,000 therefore he is not eligible.

They really could use the SSI help as they are not able to work and have no other form of income. They do have personal debt that they owe to family members.

Back Pay to Lawyer

I just "won" my disability case for SSI. I received my award letter but there is no mention on if the attorney fees have been taken out yet. Does the amount reflect my back pay after or before lawyer fees?

Also, because I went into appeal, I think I owe him more money. Does anyone know a ballpark figure as to how much more than the normal $6000? I waited 50 months, and about 18 months after my first no decision, before the one appeal was successful.
