Our mission is to provide financial management services to Social Security Insurance recipients and Social Security Disability recipients who are unable to manage their own funds.
Benedict’s Ladder serves as a representative payee for Social Security Insurance and Social Security Disability Insurance recipients whom the SSA has determined require a representative payee. All the clients we serve have a history of homelessness, however, currently, due in part to our services, all are housed. Further, all of our clients have mental health and/or substance abuse challenges. As a representative payee Benedict’s Ladder pays clients’ rent and bills using their social security funds. We prioritize paying their rent and bills in an effort to keep clients housed. We disperse the rest of the clients’ funds to them on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. Currently, we are serving 10 clients.
