Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My oncologist gave me a note for a 6 month care giver. My daughter moved in with me to do this, but my landlord was giving me grief. I understand she can get paid for this and want to know what I need to do to facilitate this.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

I'm retired on SS, and she is unemployed, at present.

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Contact your state Medicaid office to start the process since that is the program that handles this. It is not handled by Social Security.

You can choose your own caregiver (your daughter) and she will be paid.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

I'm on Medicare...do they cover this as well?
Social Security Expert: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 8 months ago

Medicare does not cover in home caregivers.

You will apply through your state Medicaid office.
