Is it legal for someone (not a minor, disabled, retired, or legal payee) to collect SSDI while the recipient is in an institution long term (paid for by medicaid/medicare, so no living expenses beyond clothing and luxuries for the recipient)? I've looked all over for the answer, as I've heard stories from friends about this happening with people they knew. I don't even know if this actually happens, I'm just curious and I can't find a good answer.
In Ohio. Sorry, don't know if that helps.
