Appeal 1118365

Fair Hearing Decision 1118365

Transfer of $36,000.00 was made exclusively for a purpose other than to qualify for MassHealth and therefore not a disqualifying transfer; Appellant transferred to her grandchildren a gift of $12,000.00 each; Appellant did so relying on tax advice and in an attempt to ease the financial burden of her grandchildren; at the time of the transfer the Appellant was 83 years old and although she had a number of medical issues she was in reasonably good health and there is no evidence that she transferred the funds with the knowledge that she would be entering a nursing home in 2010 or with the intent to establish eligibility for MassHealth benefits in 2011.
