Representative Payee Services
The responsibilities of representative payees are contained within the Social Security Act and the Code of Federal Regulations. Representative payees are required by law to use benefits properly. The first priority is to make sure the beneficiary?s current needs are being met. This includes food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and other items for the individual?s personal comfort. Representative payees are responsible for providing Accountings to Social Security Administration that summarizes where monies have been spent.
