An individual may be unaware of his or her ownership of an asset. If this is the case,
the asset is not a resource during the period in which the individual was unaware
of his/her ownership.
The value of the previously unknown asset, including any monies (such as interest)
that have accumulated on it through the month of discovery by the individual, is evaluated under regular income-counting rules for that item, not the resource rules, in the month of discovery.
For months after the month of discovery, the previously unknown asset is a resource subject to the usual resource-counting rules.
