Representative Payee

On Behalf of Christian Ayers
  |     |  

If you have a mental limitation that would affect your ability to handle your finances, the Administrative Law Judge or Social Security Administration may require that a Representative Payee be appointed. The Representative Payee would receive the check issued by SSA and is under an obligation to utilize the funds for your benefit. Sometimes a Representative Payee only serves for a period of time until the disabled person is able to independently manage their financial affairs.
