REPRESENTATIVE PAYEE

 

The Arc serves as Representative Payee for individuals receiving Social Security benefits. We work with individuals and their support providers to develop a budget to ensure that needs for housing, food, and clothing are met.

 

Once the basics are addressed, we will help budget monthly income to pay past due bills, develop plans for future expenditures, and provide spending money, all in conjunction with the individual’s hopes, wishes, and desires.
