A payee acts for the beneficiary. A payee is responsible for everything related to benefits that a capable beneficiary would do for himself or herself. We encourage payees to go beyond just managing finances and be actively involved in the beneficiary’s life. 

Things we do:

  • Determine the client needs and use his or her payments to meet those needs;
  • Make sure that rent, utilities and other personal needs are purchased;
  • Work with the clients case manager who refers the client to Open Door;
