    I was told that there is/was a benefit for us on disability, long term i think. Well, it is called "essential person benefit". it is for our spouses, friends or whoever is there to care for us ..the bad thing, they cannot work and must be with you 24 hours a day...which hubby usually is...
    as long as you are on ssi or ssd, then who ever you choose to care for you is eligible BUT, i heard they did away with that program in the 80's. GOLLYGEEDARNIT!!!
    if i am mistaken please let me know so i can go collect what hubby is due....
    has anyone else heard of this...??

    God bless!

    I know someone who is on disability due to AIDS and his mother is paid $1500 a month to be his "caretaker". This is all I know about the issue.The program must still be around it would seem. Sorry i cant help more.Take care!!!
