What if I sold it to someone that was interested and held the $ until needed it?

They do not take cars but if it is sold, blue book value, that money would go to his immediate care. So lets say ur down to the cap allowed by you state, mine is 2k, then you sell the car, you could screw his medicaid up. It would create another spenddown. Before you make a decision, you need to call Medicaid and find out how it will work.

If you choose to keep it, it will be ur responsibility to register and insure it. None of his SS, pension or 2k can be used.

Does who "take" cars? If you are talking about Medicaid I believe house and car are exempt assets but if you sell one of those assets it has to be a "fair market" value so no giving it away and the cash then becomes unprotected asset. If you mean the NH I don't think they pay any attention one way or the other to his car. If the interest person is family or a close friend you might be able to give them use of the car, they can drive and insure it and consider it available for transportation for your brother, something like that but I don't know specifics on this I just know a person can own a car even if they don't drive, that is used to take them to appointments and such.
