Caregivers

questions & answers

Question: why can`t a 73yr. old mother/caretaker of a 41yr. old adult, receive extra income besides her & his soc, sec.?

Answer: Social Security/Medicare will not usually pay a family member for caregiver services, but AHCCCS sometimes will do so, if the disabled person is AHCCCS-eligible. Fortunately, Social Security will not reduce a persons retirement benefits no matter how much extra money they earn, as long as he or she has reached full retirement age (https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/article/3739/what-happens-if-i-work-and-get-social-security-retirement-benefits).
