Being A Rep Payee - Not an Easy Undertaking in Some Cases

by Don Drake, Connelly Law Offices, Ltd.

Representative payees must be approved by SSA

At times, the Social Security Administration determines that a beneficiary is incapable of managing his or her funds for a variety of reasons. When situations like this arise, they appoint a suitable representative payee who manages the payments on behalf of the beneficiaries. Although they ideally seek a family member or friend, they also use qualified organizations like Connelly Law to act as a rep payee.
