Hello, I would like to assist you with your question. Can you please clarify your question. It appears you are asking if you can pay your sister to help, is that correct? I ask because Social Security does not pay caregivers directly.

I AM ASKING IF SOCAIL SECURITY WILL PAY HER TO HELP HIM OUT
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
THAT IS OK I DONT HAVE MONEY FOR THIS
Expert:  Matthew Breecher replied 4 months ago.

No, Social Security does not pay for caregivers. If you qualify, the State (as part of Medicaid) might cover assisted living. Generally, this means less than $2,000 in assets, less than $2,100/month +/-, and a medical determination that assisted living is needed.
