Representative Payee Services

As a Social Security Appointed Organizational Representative Payee, CAU is here to assist individuals and families who are unable to appropriately manage their finances due to physical, mental, or emotional impairment and/or substance abuse.

We have a strong commitment to each client and maintain responsibility to ensure that his or her daily basic life needs are met by:

  • Distributing clients’ funds most effectively
  • Working with social workers to determine the best plan or each client’s monthly budget
  • Working with the Social Security Administration to exchange information and ensure clients’ funds are continual
  • Conserving and protecting and excess funds the client may possess to his or her benefit
  • Preventing clients from loosing Medicaid/CCW by ensuring that all Medicaid/SSI regulations are followed and adhered to
