Representative Payee Program Reminder: When People Need Help Managing Their Money


Social Security's Representative Payment Program provides financial management for the Social Security and SSI payments of beneficiaries who are incapable of managing their money. If you are concerned that someone you have assisted is not able to manage or direct the management of his or her benefits, please call your SSA Contact or SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to request an appointment to discuss your concerns. SSA offers several useful publications on this program, covering topics such as responsibilities of a representative payee, what representative payees should not do, and reporting potential violations. SSA provides information for those who need a payee as well as for those who are, or would like to become, a representative payee. Click the items below for more information:
