Social Security Representative Payeeship

In this situation, Coleman is appointed by the Social Security Administration as a qualified representative payee to help individuals who receive Social Security and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments manage his or her money. 

The program helps ensure that an individual’s money is being used to meet his or her immediate day-to-day needs for food, housing, recreation and other miscellaneous expenses.

The program also helps an individual establish a budget and be involved with his or her financial decisions as much as possible. It assists individuals in applying for redeterminations of eligibility for entitlements and continuing medical reviews.
