Representative Payee Services
Incompass offers support in managing finances for persons with developmental disabilities who cannot do so themselves or do not have anyone to assist them.
As defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA): “A representative payee is an individual or organization appointed by SSA to receive Social Security and/or SSI benefits for someone who cannot manage or direct someone else to manage his or her money. The main responsibilities of a payee are to use the benefits to pay for the current and foreseeable needs of the beneficiary and properly save any benefits not needed to meet current needs. A payee must also keep records of expenses. When SSA requests a report, a payee must provide an accounting to SSA of how benefits were used or saved.”
