Am I allowed to keep all of my Social Security and pension if I am in a nursing home and Medicaid is paying for my care?

Everything else goes to the nursing home, so your income is then paid over to the nursing home, and your personal allowance of $100 is all you have access to from your income.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
