Community Resource Allowance unchanged

12-3-09 - In line with Social Security's freeze on cost-of-living increases for 2010, there will be no increase in the so-called Community Resource Allowance for 2010. In Florida, this figure will remain at at $109,560 through Dec. 31, 2010. If you are the spouse of someone currently receiving custodial nursing home care and drawing long-term care Medicaid benefits, the dollar amount of your non-exempt assets may not exceed this amount. There are not, however, any limits on the amount of income you may receive.
