Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
I am sorry about the situation. No, there are no socials security or other federal/state benefits for taking care of your relatives. If you are at least 62 you can apply for early social security benefits but this will permanently reduce your future benefits.
If you hire somebody to take care of her, you may benefit from some tax deductions like dependent care credit but not if you take care of her yourself.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
