Verify that the client or a responsible relative does not have actual control of the funds.
Example: An ice cream social was held for Mr. W who is in need of a kidney transplant. Funds were deposited in a local bank and the president of the bank is responsible for disbursing funds to medical vendors. The funds are exempt because Mr. W does not have access to them.
