New Resource for Individuals Who Provide Care
Last Updated: November 14, 2019
During National Caregivers Month, we recognize and celebrate caregivers who provide comfort and care for people of all ages living with disabilities and illnesses.
We work closely with caregivers who serve as representative payees and oversee Social Security or Supplemental Security Income benefits for beneficiaries who are unable to manage their own benefits. To make it easier for these caregivers to do business with us, we created a Representative Payee Portal. The portal provides a convenient way for individual representative payees with a my Social Security account to manage direct deposit, wage reporting, and annual reporting for their beneficiaries.
You can learn more about becoming a representative payee and all the requirements by:
- Visiting our representative payee website;
- Watching our training videos on the duties of a representative payee; and
- Reading publications from our representative payee library.
