The Klamath & Lake Community Action Services (KLCAS) Representative Payee Program was first implemented in March 2011. KLCAS is a fully bonded and insured Organizational Payee approved by the Social Security Administration to assist Social Security (SSI/SSDI) recipients.
The Representative Payee works with clients to develop and maintain a budget that includes a savings plan for future needs. KLCAS collects a monthly service fee which is determined annually by the Social Security Administration. Clients benefit from our program by having a liaison to negotiate bills on their behalf, helping stabilize and improve their financial situations. KLCAS assists clients with health insurance filing and reporting, public entitlement applications, and housing placement. KLCAS also provides referrals to different community resources as appropriate for each client.
Make the Connection
KLCAS receives referrals from various organizations such as the Social Security Administration, Veterans Administration, County Mental Health, Department of Human Services, other county agencies, community partners, family members, as well as the individuals themselves.
