Improving the Social Security Representative Payee Program:
Serving Beneficiaries and Minimizing Misuse

by

Barbara A. Bailar, Consultant in survey methodology, Washington, D.C. and Chair, Committee on Social Security Representative Payees, Center for Economic, Governance, and International Studies, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, National Research Council

More than 7 million recipients of Social Security benefits have a representative payee -- a person or an organization -- to receive or manage their benefits. This new report, requested by the Social Security Administration, examines how these payments are being used by the payees on behalf of the beneficiaries.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on July 30, 2007 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
