Does mom have to apply for veterans spouse benefits?
We're thinking about applying for veterans spouse benefits for my elderly mother who lives in an assisted living in Wisconsin. For some reason my mother is leery about applying for the veterans benefits. She thinks it will cause problems when she runs out of money and wants to apply for state benefits. I was told that if she applies for state benefits when she runs out of money and the state finds out she could have gotten veterans benefits that could be problematic for her so she basically has to apply for veterans benefits if she wants state benefits down the road. Help!
