The Money Management Program provides bill payer and representative payee services to low-income individuals 55 years and older who lack the ability to effectively manage their own financial affairs. Designed to prevent financial abuse, neglect and exploitation of the elderly, the Money Management Program promotes independent living for individuals on a fixed income who have no one else available or appropriate to assist them.
The goal of the Money Management Program is to prevent financial abuse, neglect and exploitation of adults 55 years of age and older. A sister program of Catholic Charities’ Guardianship Program, the Money Management Program is a less restrictive alternative to entering into a legal guardianship.
How We Help
Case managers provide continuous support and guidance to each client, with their best interest in mind.
Through our Bill Payer Service, clients are paired with a trained bill payer who provides one-on-one financial management assistance. Bill payers:
Bill Payers do not have signature authority, leaving the client in control of their own financial affairs.
The Money Management Program’s Representative Payee Service establishes Catholic Charities as the sole account manager of a client’s federal funds when an individual has been deemed by the distributing federal agency unable to effectively manage their benefits. Representative payees:
Money Management Program case managers, providing representative payee services, have sole signature authority over a client’s federal funds account, ensuring that financial decisions are being made in the client’s best interest.
