WGAP is appointed by the Social Security Administration to receive Social Security and/or SSI benefits for someone who cannot manage his or her money. Our primary responsibility is to use the benefits to meet the current needs for day-to-day living: food, clothing, housing, utilities, transportation, medical expenses and personal items. Of course, there are monthly and annual accounting reports submitted to the Social Security Administration of all funds. A fee of $40.00 monthly is charged.
This WGAP Program is a huge benefit to the elderly and disabled who are vulnerable to those that would take advantage of them. It also helps individuals struggling with alcohol or substance addiction.
WGAP is currently providing Payee Services to over 100 individuals throughout the Mid-Columbia area.
