As Representative Payee, we provide financial management services for individuals identified by the Social Security Administration as needing help managing their Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits who do not have a capable or willing family member or friend.
Our service differs from other Representative Payee Programs in that our goal for each individual is for them to live as independently as their disability will allow. Therefore, we involve the consumer and/or guardian in the budgeting and decision making processes. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity and we work hard to achieve that. In addition, the individuals we serve also have access to our Independent Living Program in which information, training and supports are provided to assist people with disabilities in making informed choices about their disability related needs.
