P&A for Representative Payee (PARP)

Our PARP program protects Social Security beneficiaries that require the assistance of a representative payee from financial exploitation, abuse, and neglect. A representative payee is a person or an organization who assists someone who can’t manage or direct the management of their benefits. We review the performance of representative payees through beneficiary and payee interviews, onsite inspections, and a detailed review of financial and other documentation. These reviews ensure the wellbeing of beneficiaries while educating payees on how to better serve them.

Who is a Representative Payee?
