NEW Feature to Help You Protect Your Social Security Benefits
We don’t see much in the way of newness and innovation from The Social Security Administration very often. Christy Bieber covers everything you’d want to know about going online to designate a representative payee in advance. This new tool allows those applying for Social Security benefits, and those receiving them, to advance designate a representative payee. Up to three individuals can be designated to serve in this role. A representative payee is someone who receives and manages your Social Security payments on your behalf if you become unable to manage them yourself. He/she could be an individual or an organization. Visit your my Social Security Account to complete your designation online. You can also visit your local Social Security office or can make a request via phone or mail. Full article here.
