My sister gets $1000 per month social security and $600 per month from an investment. Can she legally spend that money down

Asked almost 2 years ago - Minneapolis, MN

    Answered . Instead of the insurance advisor your sister needs to talk with a local social security attorney or elder law attorney to see that her low income subsidy options are.
