I'm welfare due to injury, disabled & cant work, parents die & leave their property to you, do you need to pay it back ?
I am currently on Welfare due to an Injury, disabled & cant work, had received welfare health insurance & food stamps which were provided to me for several years as help assistance to be able to survive,
The Injury is all official & real, a spinal injury, and I have all the official MRI records as valid proof, as well as many various doctor visits and letters from the doctors alike of my Injury & Depression.
During all that time (3 or 4 years) I was being treated by various doctors who had provided me with care & prescribed various medicine while I was on the Welfare for which their health insurance had paid for, and as a result of this I could not work nor support myself during all that time, mostly bed confined.
And then all of a sudden if my last surviving parent should pass away leaving me all of their several paid off properties and/or bank accounts, that they had owned outright which they had rented or had lived in that belonged to them, but which would now belong to me as per their Will, but yet I am still Injured & still Disabled & Depressed regardless & unfortunately cannot work.
Do I then need to instantly come off from the Welfare services since I would then inherit all ?
The Welfare benefits are being reviewed year by year, so then do I actually cancel Welfare benefits myself before hand & how, or still continue receiving till the next review period, or just do absolutely nothing till the next review ?
Should there be an actual Will made by my last living Parent ?
Do I really need to retain an Attorney and if so why ?
And most important, Would I need to pay back anything back to the Welfare system of PA from all that time that I had received the assistance & benefits (for 3 or 4 years) ?
I have tried to apply for Disability on my own but sadly was denied my first time and never had tried again. Too much work for me... while in this state of still in depression and still being injured.
I am a legal American residing in PA.
I do Not wish to do anything that is illegal or wrong.
Please Help Me.
(Mom is still alive but is sick and old, sadly getting worse...)
What should I now do or what should happen to me next ?
Thank you so very much to all, for all your time, help and care.
