Representative Payee Assistance is a program that provides free caseworker assistance to persons suffering from mental illness, chemical dependency, or physical disabilities, and who are unable to manage their federal benefits independently, including Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability.  

The Stewpot provides free representative payee services and is actively recruiting volunteers to serve as independent advocates for at-risk clients.

The Stewpot Representative Payee Program is a proactive effort to keep clients living independently. Federal benefits assistance is often required by Social Security Administration in order for our program participants to receive funds.

For Representative Payee assistance, ask to meet with a caseworker to inquire about availability. Call the caseworker in charge of the Representative Payee program at 214.382.5928 or email

PLEASE NOTE: We are not accepting applications for new Rep Payee clients at this time. For assistance, please contact CrissCross, LifeSpeak Services, or Senior Source
