Long-Term Care Residents are people who live in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities.

Did you know…

    • Medicaid does not count the stimulus payment as income.
    • The stimulus money may affect assets if not used within 12 months.
    • If the facility receives the resident’s checks, the facility must give him/her their stimulus check.
    • It is the resident’s money to spend how they choose!
