What is a rep payee? While most people receive their Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments directly, some need assistance in managing their benefits. Payments to these individuals are paid through a representative payee who receives the check on behalf of the beneficiary and provides for their personal needs. For many beneficiaries, a family member or friend serves as the payee. For some individuals, an Organizational Representative Payee is chosen. Organizational Representative Payees generally provide case management services, spiritual guidance or community assistance. What does a rep payee do? Representative Payees understand the needs of the beneficiary (i.e., food, clothing, shelter, medical expenses and personal items) Social Security payments are used to meet beneficiary needs Any money left over after meeting the beneficiary’s needs are conserved Income and expense records are kept for each beneficiary for at least 2 years per Social Security guidelines and are available for review. Annual filings and other Social Security reporting are completed in compliance with Social Security requirements.
