Government Benefits

Government agencies are one of the biggest resources for many people. Some people have their only savings here; by savings we mean Social Security. This is also where we need to understand all state or federal benefits for you, the family caregiver as well as things like Social Security Disability, Medicare and Medicaid.

Medicaid will not cover the cost of care and to get it people need to first significantly spend down their assets.

Heads up. Caregivers need the correct legal paperwork and rights in order to get any information from these agencies. See Care Support for information and support.
