What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Washington State
My grandmother passed away 10/1 and my mohter is the Rep Payee of her bank account. My grandmother only had SS as income, she was on DSHS and received Medicare/Medicade. She no other source of income or life insurance. My question: There is money in her account and my mother is not sure what she is allowed to use for funeral expenses if anything.
Can she used the money to fly her sister up for the funeral? Are we allowed to purchase a headstone? Can you please send me some information as the SSI website is very unclear and no one has returned our calls.
