A Representative Payee is a person or agency who helps people pay for their basic needs with their fixed income. This can include paying rent, medical and utility bills, groceries and transportation. Most people who receive this service have income from the Social Security Administration, Veterans Affairs or Railroad Retirement. We also can help people who have other sources of income.

Our Representative Payee program was started in March 2011 to help people in Klamath and Lake Counties live on a budget and make sure their monthly bills are paid on time. We are a fully bonded and insured Organizational Payee and we are approved by the Social Security Administration.
