Event description


The Social Security Advisory Board is hosting a public forum to discuss the Social Security Administration’s representative payee program. Currently, more than six million payees manage $70 billion in Social Security and Supplemental Security Income benefits for more than 3.5 million adults and 4 million children determined to be incapable of managing their benefits. Projections indicate that the number of people needing assistance will increase dramatically in the coming decades as the population ages. The day’s discussion will include the process of determining capacity, best practices, collaborative efforts and new approaches from the front lines, necessary oversight, program evaluation and preparing for the future. For more information on the Board and our work on these issues, please visit our website.
