.02 State Assistance Resources - Availability - Sole and Separate
Sole and separate indicates the resource is owned solely by a nonparticipant and is not shared with their spouse or others.
 
Consider the resource as sole and separate ownership when obtained in either of the following manners:
 
Before the present marriage
At any time by gift or inheritance
 
Consider resources received DURING the present marriage (not as a gift or an inheritance) jointly owned, even when only one spouse holds the legal title. Do NOT consider the resources as sole and separate.
