What happens when veteran spouse benefits run out?

If my 89-year-old mother who lives in assisted living in Wisconsin gets veterans spouse benefits and then runs out of money will she still be eligible to apply for State assistance through the family care program? Her monthly income including the veterans benefits is $2900.

Federal Veterans Benefits from the US Department of Veterans Affairs do not run out. They will continue as long as the need is there. Unless the medical expenses change or your mother receives an inheiritence or wins the lottery that money will continue to be sent to her. She can apply for state assistance but if that takes over paying her medical bills (such as medicaid) the VA needs to be notified and they will adjust her pension.
