Customer Question
Good morning and thank...

Good morning and thank you. my question is: can the guardian of a social security recipient receive payment for taking care of that person if the person is living in the home.

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

Ok I am the legal guardian of a elderly person. the person lives with me because that person cannot live on her own or take care of herself.

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

No not at this time

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

Medicaid offers payments to persons who care for individuals in their home. What state are you located in?

Michigan. how do i apply, do i need to go into an s.s. office or can I do it on line, also how can i get written information of all of my options?
Social Security Expert: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 7 months ago

Medicaid is state. SS is federal government.

The Medicaid waiver payments are provided by the state, NOT Social Security. That is the reason I asked you for your location.

Here is the information for Michigan:

My best advice would be to call the number provided in the link, and they will be able to answer your questions.

Thank you.
