Representative Payee Services

Family Counseling Service’s Representative Payee Department is certified and recognized as a Representative Payee Service by both the Veteran’s Administration and the Social Security Administration. If you or someone you know has been ordered to have a payee, we can help.

Family Counseling Service accepts clients that are on a fixed income including Social Security Income (SSA, SSI, and SSDI), Veteran's Pension Income (VA), Public Employee Retirement System (PERS), retirement pension, or direct deposit from an employee.

At Family Counseling Service, we recognize the financial strain individuals face, and we work to keep our fees as low as possible. We maintain full transparency so that you can see what fees and transactions have occurred. We ensure accurate and confidential documentation for each transaction and each client.

Fees for payee services begin at $54 per month, however, we may charge up to 10% of an individual’s total income.

The process for approval often takes 6 weeks at minimum.
