Representative Payee

LifeSpan Representative Payee services provide financial peace of mind for hundreds of clients in the state of Ohio (including Butler County, Warren County, and Hamilton County), regardless of their county of residence.

Is there a person in your life who has difficulty getting the rent paid on time or making online payments or writing a check? A representative payee can make their life easier.

Our clients live a more stable and worry-free life with all their bills prioritized and paid on time for them, and money is budgeted and issued to the client each week for their personal spending. By making our clients’ needs a priority, we make their lives happier and more manageable.

LifeSpan provides Representative Payee services for:

Social Security Recipients…

  • Some SSI recipients and SSDI recipients are required to have a Representative Payee by the Social Security Administration.
  • If you do not have a friend or family member to serve as Payee, we can provide Representative Payee services for recipients.
