Description of Service
PLAN of PA serves as an Organizational Representative Payee for mentally disabled adults 18+ years of age receiving SSI & SSD benefits from the Social Security Administration. PLAN of PA does not require that an individual have a case manager to become a client. As Representative Payee, PLAN of PA arranges for the clients Social Security check to be deposited directly into an individual, interest-bearing checking account, assures prompt payment of bills for basic food, shelter and medical needs and then helps develop a realistic, individualized budget for any remaining funds. The Social Security Administration allows PLAN of PA, as an organizational representative payee, to deduct $37 per month from each clients SSI or SSD monthly check. The remaining $38 that it costs PLAN of PA, per month, per client to run the program comes from donations, grants from private foundations and alternative sources of funding.
