Representative Payee Services

Representative Payee Service, sometimes mandated by the Social Security Office, is a service whereby an individual's benefits are received by a payee at our agency. The payee is responsible for paying that individual's bills, and then distributing the remaining funds back to the individual.

Individuals receiving Representative Payee Services are provided with financial counseling aimed at working toward eventual financial independence.

Financial counseling is also available for individuals who are financially independent, but would like some support.

For more information, Cattaraugus County residents should contact Ron Kilbourn and Allegany County residents should contact Rose EdwardsDeCordova
