Northwest Washington Payee Services

Our Representative Payee service is a non-profit organization that works with individuals of all ages who receive Social Security and who find themselves unable to manage their finances.

If you need assistance in managing your benefits, a payee service might be beneficial to you.

A representative payee manages your funds for you. You and your representative payee will discuss your financial needs and create a budget that works for you.  Having a family member or friend as your payee may work for some, but if personal conflict or disagreement should arise, your finances could be at risk. Your representative payee will make sure your bills are paid in a timely manner. We will discuss how you will receive funds for your own personal monthly spending.

We can help you, if:

  • You are required by the Social Security Administration to have a payee

  • You already have a payee, but would like a different one


What to Expect from the Northwest Washington Payee Services Program

As your representative payee, you can expect that we will do our best to serve your financial needs.

At your first appointment, we will go over your financial situation. Come prepared to let us know what bills need to be paid and what funds you have coming in.


We will discuss how and when your bills will be paid, what your personal monthly spending will be and answer any questions you might have.

We will go over your rights and responsibilities and other necessary paperwork.

What the Northwest Washington Payee Services Program Will Expect of You

Honesty is always the best policy!

You will need to call creditors to have your bills sent to our office. Should you choose to have bills mailed to you, you will need to provide us with a copy of each bill.

You must keep us informed of any changes in your bills. If you plan on moving or have moved we need to know ASAP!
