Note: This is the case regardless of who reports the income from the CD for IRS purposes.

A veteran has a $10,000 certificate of deposit (CD). The veteran adds a nephew who does not live in the veteran’s household as joint owner. The legal effect of this transaction is to give each joint owner an undivided one-half interest in the CD. The value of the CD is reduced to $5,000 for net worth purposes.
