Family Counseling and Payee Service


Family Counseling and Payee Service has been working to provide quality payee services to Nevadan's in need since 2003. We work to always treat our clients with the respect and consideration they deserve. At our agency, our clients come first. This is evident in the way we take time to get to know our clients unique needs and struggles to help determine what services can benefit them most. We are a recognized payee service by both the Veteran's Administration and Social Security Administration. 


At Family Counseling and Payee Service it's not just about the money!

In addition to helping provide financial stability we offer assistance with applications for housing, food stamps, Medicare and Medicaid as well as Energy Assistance Program applications. We understand everyone's needs vary, and offer tailored services.  We can help with basic living and self care skills, communication and social skills, goal setting and transitional living skills. 


At Family Counseling and Payee Service we recognize the financial strain clients face and work to keep our fee's as low as possible. There is no contract required, so you can use our services as needed! We maintain full transparency so that you can see what fees and bills have been paid each month, ensuring accurate documentation for each transaction.

Bill Pay Services

Pre and Post Bankruptcy 

At Family Counseling and Payee Service we offer Veteran's Bill Pay and Senior Bill Pay services! 


After witnessing firsthand the difficulty our own aging parents had, our siblings or ourselves trying to maintain two homes, two sets of bills, of our senior parents forgetting bills had arrived, forgetting to pay or overpaying bills, or even having services shut off due to non-payment we developed the Senior Bill Pay service. 


If you or a loved one are having difficulty ensuring bills are paid each month, we may be able to help.

We offer bill pay services to those with cognitive or physical impairments that impact the ability to physically go out and pay bills or to accurately build and maintain a budget. Family and Payee Counseling Service's Senior and Veterans Bill Pay Service offers peace of mind in knowing bills are paid on time, in full, every month.


See if you could benefit from our bill pay service. 

* Do you have a physical or cognitive impairment preventing you from creating and implementing a monthly budget, or lack the physical ability to leave your home to pay bills as needed?
* Do you have difficulty tracking bill due dates?  
*Are you using cash advances to meet obligations? 
*Are you skipping bills or paying bills late?  
*Have you depleted or not have a savings account?  
*Has difficulty managing your finances negatively impacted your home life and family relationships? 
*Do you have an addiction that makes it difficult to pay your bills or maintain housing? 
*Do next month's bills arrive before you've had a chance to pay this month's bills?  

Most people answer true to one or two of the above questions. If you found that your situation fits one or more of those questions, you may benefit from our bill pay service.


We at Family Counseling and Payee Service offer the required classes needed to earn your certificate for pre and post bankruptcy. You do not need a bankruptcy attorney to start the pre-bankruptcy process as we offer referals to help you along your way to financial stability and independence.  As part of this service we will help you obtain and review your credit report, starting the process of building back your credit! Credit counselors are available throughout the process and if necessary can arrange payment plans with your creditors. 


Please call 775-322-6557 for more information and to find out about pre and post bankruptcy class schedules.
