HCCI is able to assist as a representative payee for those who struggle financially with the management of their disability or retirement benefits. As background, a Representative Payee Service provides assistance to the most vulnerable members of society by serving individuals who are unable to manage their Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits: the young, the elderly, the homeless and the disabled. Work involves the management of Social Security benefits and supplementary income on behalf of an individual who has been deemed unable (or unfit) to care for themselves. As the representative payee, HCCI is expected to spend the benefits on necessities for the beneficiary and to assist the person with money management of a personal allowance. The payee also provides a valuable service of protecting individuals served from financial abuse and victimization.

- One on one help with budgeting and management of funds.
