Mission

It is our mission to provide representative payee services for Social Security beneficiaries who have been identified as needing assistance with managing their benefits. We are devoted to assure the beneficiaries’ personal care and well-being by managing their benefits in a timely and respectful manner.

Notes from the nonprofit

Our Representative Payee organization for Social Security beneficiaries is new nonprofit serving Northwest Washington. We would greatly benefit from contributed funds to help cover what costs are involved in setting up a stable environment for a very vulnerable sector of our society. We are authorized by the Social Security Administration to charge a set fee-for-service from our clients but we do not always charge this fee. Most of our clients' income is very limited. Contributions and grants will help our organization to insure a much more stable environment for those clients we hope to assist. Thank you so much for visiting our profile.

Representative Payee Organization (RPO) Program

Northwest Washington Payee Services, also known as NWWPS, is a nonprofit corporation organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes. As an Organizational Representative Payee for Social Security beneficiaries, it is our mission, duty, and purpose to provide representative payee services for beneficiaries who have been identified as needing assistance with managing their benefits. We are devoted to assure the beneficiaries’ personal care and well-being by managing their benefits in a timely and respectful manner. The funds will be managed on behalf of the beneficiary to pay for his or her basic living expenses such as food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and personal comfort items. The first month of service to each beneficiary will be free of charge. We maintain ethical standards by employing best practices, acting with integrity, and upholding the highest standards of our profession. Our objectives are to assist the at-risk population of Whatcom and Skagit Counties with the compassion and integrity they deserve.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal is for Northwest Washington Payee Services to represent a vulnerable sector of our society as a Representative Payee service when no other option is available to them (such as a family member, relative, or friend) and to help stabilize their life situation.

Northwest Washington Payee Services collects Social Security (SS) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit funds on behalf of those who are legally incompetent and/or mentally or physically debilitated because of drug or alcohol abuse, mental or physical impairments, or old age. The funds are managed on behalf of the beneficiary to pay for his or her basic living expenses such as food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and personal comfort items. By assisting the young, elderly, and disabled with their Social Security benefits Northwest Washington Payee Services serves this at-risk population with the compassion and integrity they deserve. Without such services, beneficiaries may be unable, for some time, to receive their funds. Therefore, as a representative payee organization, Northwest Washington Payee Services plays a vital role in creating a stable living environment for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
In the future, funding will be provided though contributions from the public and from the fee-for-service that Social Security allows organizational payees to charge the beneficiary. Northwest Washington Payees Services is a start-up organization and its funds are currently from start-up loans.

Northwest Washington Payee Services has the capability to serve Whatcom and Skagit counties in Northwest Washington and is set up to serve only SS and SSI beneficiaries at this time.

Northwest Washington Payee Services' progress can be determined by the individuals it is serving that are not homeless and who are living as independently in the community as possible.
Northwest Washington Payee Services has recently become authorized to participate in Social Security's Representative Payee Organization (RPO) Program, which authorizes a (capped) fee-for-service. There is no data to at this time to indicate the progress in this program. We hope to serve between 30 to 50 individuals by the end of 2015. Future progress in this program will be determined as we serve more individuals in the year (2015) and in future years.
