Do the same legal considerations apply for joint owned accounts as they do for single owned accounts with medicaid and LTC?
My mother & I jointly own every financial account she has. Do the same legal considerations apply in this instance for medicaid assistance in long-term care?
Since your mother's name is first on the accounts, they are listed under her social security number. Medicaid will consider these to be her assets unless you can prove that you contributed some portion of the funds from your own resources.
