L Representative Payee Example
 
Jane and her 12-year-old son, Don, live together. Don receives $600 per month in SSA benefits because his father is deceased. Mary, Don's grandmother is the Representative Payee for Don's SSA benefits and does not live with Jane and Don. Mary does not give cash to Jane or Don; she uses the $500 of Don's SSA benefits to provide for Don's needs (clothes, books, personal care items, etc.).
 
The $500 of Don's SSA benefits used to provide for Don's needs are countable to Jane's budgetary unit for CA and NA.
 
The $100 of Don's SSA benefits not used to provide for Don's needs and retained by Mary is not countable to Jane's budgetary unit for CA and NA.
