Representative Payee Services
MHASC is appointed by the Social Security Administration as representative payee for many South Carolinians unable to manage their Social Security Income and/or Social Security Disability Income benefits. A Representative Payee Program can play a major role in consumer’s recovery and lifestyle by providing stability and less stress. Working closely with case managers, MHASC helps the client budget their money and disburses the funds on their behalf to ensure their current needs are met, including housing, utilities, food, medical expenses, personal care and clothing. MHASC must comply with Social Security Administration (SSA) audit guidelines and complete SSA annual reports. Regular income and expense reports are provided to the case manager and client. MHASC and its affiliate network currently serve as representative payee for more than 2,000 South Carolinians.
