I have a patient who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) but can't manage her own money. Can we set up a special needs trust to receive her benefits and use them for her benefit over the course of the month?
It may be more prudent to have a Representative Payee appointed for her. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will do this so that someone can help manage her SSI check. For more on Representative Payees, click here.Article Last Modified: 11/15/2016
