Than you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
No, if your mother bought them as a gift to you even though her name is XXXXX XXXXX they would not be counted towards her assets, even though her SSN is on there with your SSN.
The bonds with only her SSN and not your SSN, but your name, as long as you are not just listed as a beneficiary
on the bond would still be your property and you can cash them in as they would not be part of her estate at the time of her death either. You do not have to claim either set of bonds as her assets for purposes of long term care.
