LWC offers representative payee services for our clients. Many individuals with disabilities have had little opportunity to develop money management skills resulting in the necessity for a payee being assigned for their cash benefit. As a payee, LWC follows guidelines put in place by the Social Security Administration and the Department of Social and Health Services. These guidelines assure the client’s basic needs are always met. LWC’s payee establishes a budget with each client and assists in educating and assisting in money management to ensure financial stability.
