New Resource for Individuals Who Provide Care

November 14, 2019 • By

Woman helping her motherDuring 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.

    Can caregivers who are basically labeled as independent contractors, Apply for any assistance with the payment of taxes. I have payed taxes my entire life. I now find myself on the other side of the fence and owing taxes at the end of the year. Are their any programs or tax credits that caregivers of special needs and or mentally handicapped people may apply for? Thank you
