If you or a family member are already receiving a PLAN|NJ service, you can also have us serve as the Representative Payee for Social Security benefits for you. When you or your loved one needs assistance with budgeting and bill paying, we can manage Social Security and other income to ensure financial solvency and provide protection from potential financial exploitation.

As a representative payee, PLAN|NJ will:

  • Communicate with you or your loved one, monitor expenses, and assist with paying bills 
  • Ensure that basic requirements are met for food, clothing, and shelter
  • Assist with budgeting and other regular financial management
  • Assist with eligibility and benefits issues, ensuring personal needs and financial obligations are met
  • Submit required reports to the Social Security Administration and other governmental agencies
