Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

First, rest assured that they cannot take your social security to pay a debt now that you've moved out of the home. It would be different if you were still living there receiving Medicaid. Second, they cannot make your brother pay your debt unless he signed something agreeing to be personally liable.

What other assets do you have?
