PM 07-04-02: Jointly Held Assets

WAG 07-04-02

revised manual textAssets owned jointly by separate SNAP households are considered available in their entirety to each household unless it can be shown that the asset is inaccessible to the household.

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.

revised manual text The assets of a categorically eligible SNAP household (PM 05-07-00) are exempt, unless the household receives substantial lottery or gambling winnings as a cash prize of New Manual Text more than $4,250. See PM 07-04-21.
