This morning my dh said we need to send his mother $100. This would not be a big deal if it were not for the fact that we are BOTH unemployed at the moment, living on savings. I asked what this was for and he said she needs it to do stuff. Where is her $ she gets SS and retirement funds the first week of every month. Where is her money? I ask where the $ went and he said she paid bills and medical bills. Well she has medicaid and medical ins from her spouses employer. Doesn't that mean no out of pocket for medical? So what is she going to do for the rest of Feb. Well he says he is going to send her money and that is that! I walked away. We can not pay for her to have fun! I know she is not paying any rent because she lives with a friend. No utility bills nothing for everyday expenses but food. Why is this falling on us?
I would be pissed too if my dh decided to start making financial decisions on his own regarding our family money. However, I do have to correct you on the assumption that there are no out of pocket costs on medicare . My mom is disabled and has it. She has to pay $22 for office visits, extra $5-10 for lab tests, and $3 per prescription.
