Assets owned jointly by separate SNAP units are considered available in their entirety to each unit unless it can be shown that the asset is inaccessible to the unit.
A jointly owned asset is exempt if the asset:
- cannot be practically divided, and
- is accessible only with the consent of the joint owner, and
- the joint owner refuses to give that consent.
NOTE: The assets of a categorically eligible SNAP unit are exempt (see PM 05-07-00).
