Hi from Just Answer. I'mCustomer I can assist, since the first expert opted out.
The rule cites only equity in a car in Florida to be an issue for SNAP. Other than that, the first expert was correct in his response.
Since it is equity that drives the issue, as long as no significant $$ is paid down on the leased vehicle (creating the argument that there is equity), the lease should be fine.
I am concerned, however, with his ability to lease the vehicle in his name with no job or income other than assistance. A lease by you for his use could be considered in-kind income, and defeat the purpose of your leasing him a car. This could soil his eligibility from an income basis, not from an asset basis. And this would certainly have to disclosed to his Florida case manager.
Since the purpose is to look for work, your case manager may allow the vehicle lease. Full disclosure is likely the best bet here, and don't be surprised if your son has to report in regularly about his job hunting to allow the car lease.
I hope that helps. Please rate when your question is answered. I'mCustomer
