How the program works

The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes Volunteers of America Oklahoma as an Organizational Representative Payee. Payee Services provides assistance to help adults manage  their Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. 

Individuals 18 years of age and older who receives benefits from SSA is eligible for the program. Some participants are required by SSA to have a representative payee, while others may choose to have a representative payee .

Once the client is enrolled, a dedicated Payee Services coordinator and the client set financial goals and a budget. The Social Security Administration directs benefits through Volunteers of America, on behalf of the client, to housing management and utility companies to ensure stable housing. Clients are provided a weekly disbursement through check or debit card for discretionary spending. A small fee is charged monthly to the client for service.
