Representative Payee
Your loved ones or those entrusted to you may be receiving Social Security or veterans benefits, but it isn’t easy to be responsible for these payments and the bills that need to be paid. There are requirements and reporting as well as added family stress. Credit Advisors Foundation has been helping people manage their money for over 25 years. We are uniquely situated to properly and carefully act in this role. We take the burden and responsibility of handling federal payments.
If you think you might need representative payee services for a loved one, please call 888-503-5718 or 402-514-3350 (In NE) and ask for Darlyn, or contact her via email at
