This is a tax-free benefit deposited directly into the claimant's bank account. It does NOT affect Social Security and it continues for life. Unlike other government benefits, this benefit may be used for anything. Most often it is used to pay for home health care, nursing services, independent or assisted living facilities as well as nursing home care and other medical expenses.
