The Maine Way, Inc. started the Representative Payee Program in 2008 in response to significant state budget cuts and an ever increasing need for FREE assistance in managing client finances. Our client base has grown from 40 clients in 2008 to over 100 in 2013. Currently, the volunteer resources committed to this program are approximately 60 hours per week.
Our Representative Payee Program is approved and audited by the Social Security Administration. All personal and financial client information is input and stored in a separate account file on a secure computer program that is managed by our volunteer Program Coordinator.
