Representative Payee

Payee clients live a more stable and worry-free life with their bills prioritized and paid on time for them, and money is budgeted and issued each week for their personal spending. The Representative Payee program is a monthly bill-paying service for clients who are otherwise unable to handle their income properly. Services include:

• Individualized budget developed, prioritizing payment of rent, utilities, and other basic needs
• Personal spending money issued to each client on a weekly basis. Weekly funds are issued via check or an electronic load of a pre-paid debit card.
• Extra spending money, if available, can be issued to clients upon request. 2 days’ notice is required, and receipts are requested for any extra spending issued for over $100.
• Any remaining money for each client is saved in their account for upcoming emergencies or quality of life needs. We encourage all clients to build an emergency fund of at least $200 for these needs.
• Electronic record-keeping is maintained for each client and account ledgers are provided to clients upon request, which shows all income and expenses for the time period requested.
• Services available to Social Security recipients, Seniors, and Private Pay individuals.

About Guardianship Guardians are appointed by the Probate Court to make decisions for their clients relating to health care, living arrangements, money, safety issues or other personal matters. Guardians may be assigned to support individuals who need assistance in decision-making and advocacy based on limitations that impair their ability to make competent decisions. These services are offered to residents in Butler, Warren, Clinton, and Hamilton Counties.

• Suffer from an illness, injury, or disability that impairs their ability to make competent decisions

The responsibilities of a guardian can include:
• Making decisions about housing and medical safety.

On the day of your assessment, you should have:

  • Photo I.D.
  • Proof of Insurance: If you have insurance, bring a copy of your card. For Medicare recipients, you should also bring your current year social security award letter.
  • No Insurance: If you do not have insurance, we will help you apply for Medicaid or government funding. To do this, we will need three things: 1) Photo I.D., 2) Proof of Income – for you and your spouse if married, 3) Proof of Residency – piece of mail with your address listed.
  • Completed Intake Paperwork – before your first appointment, you must complete your intake paperwork. Paperwork can be mailed to you or print them and bring completed forms to your appointment. Click Here to View Intake Packet

What should I expect during the assessment?

Our intake specialists will walk you through a short survey and interview. This determines what services you need, verifies your insurance or begins the application for funds if you don’t have insurance. In the end, you will leave with a plan, an assigned expert in the field and an appointment for future sessions.
