Representative Payee Program
REPRESENTATIVE PAYEE ASSISTANT
205-759-1211 ext. 257
A little about this program:
Serving over 150 Social Security beneficiaries, this service provides bill paying, banking and budgeting assistance as well as completing applications and/or recertification forms. Additionally, we provide beneficiaries with access to community resources and events and provide advocacy when needed.
Referrals are made by the Social Security Administration to assist individuals who have been determined unable to manage their financial affairs.
The ESWA Representative Payment Program provides assistance to over 300 of the most vulnerable members of our community: the young, the elderly, and the disabled who are unable to manage their Social Security or Supplemental Security Income benefits. ESWA representative payees receive and handle all aspects of the beneficiary’s Social Security funds and advocate on their behalf.
Payees supervise payment for:
• housing and utilities
• medical and dental expenses
• personal care items
• rehabilitation expenses (if disabled)
