HELPING PEOPLE MANAGE THEIR FINANCES, ENSURING THAT THEIR BASIC NEEDS ARE MET.

 

This program assists individuals to manage their finances. In most cases Social Security has determined that an individual cannot manage their benefits without assistance. As Representative Payee, we are required to ensure that basic needs for shelter and food are met and that remaining funds are used in ways that best serve the clients’ interests. The Arc strives to insure that each individual is as involved as possible within the confines of our appointed obligations. This program is funded through clients fees and donations.
