NeighborImpact’s Representative Payee program improves the community tenure for persons with cognitive and physical limitations by ensuring that their disability benefits are used to meet their basic needs. NeighborImpact is approved by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to receive disability benefits on a client’s behalf, when the SSA deems it necessary. The Representative Payee budgets the money and disburses the funds to pay for current living needs including housing, utilities, food, medical expenses, personal care and clothing. Any funds left over after meeting the client’s current needs are kept in an interest bearing account for future needs.
