How SSA Can Improve the Representative Payee Program to Protect Vulnerable Seniors

May 31, 2016

Social Security’s Representative Payee Program is crucial to protecting the resources and economic security of vulnerable older adults who cannot manage their own finances. It is also inadequate to meet the growing needs of older adults and has a number of problems in both its capability determination process and in the way the overall program is administered. This Issue Brief, How SSA Can Improve the Representative Payee Program to Protect Vulnerable Seniors is the final paper in a series that Justice in Aging has produced with the support of a fellowship grant from the Borchard Foundation on Law and Aging.
