Jasper, AL asked in Elder Law, Health Care Law, Public Benefits and Social Security for Alabama

Q: My mother in law is 53, disabled, has no income, and was told that she doesn't qualify for Medicaid or disability.

She was told it is due to her having land in her name that her mother left her. Is there any truth to this or any way around it? She currently has no insurance coverage and no way to get any.

A: An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Your mother could consider trying to arrange a free initial consult with a social security disability attorney (among other types of attorneys, based on your selected categories). There is a section here for Social Security here if you wanted to repost your question. The accuracy of the information you say she has been told could depend on the source. An attorney consult could help clear things up. Good luck
