Many people with disabilities receive Social Security benefits. Social Security assigns a Representative Payee if they have information that indicates the person needs help managing their money. Frequently, people have had little to no opportunity or experience with their money. They haven’t been responsible for developing a budget, paying their bills, and saving for things they want. They haven’t had the opportunity to learn from their successes or from mistakes. In supporting people to exercise their rights, we find that money is important to people. It is our responsibility to help people gain experience and skills to manage their money or to make a truly informed choice.
