Since 1999, SKILS'KIN has been providing financial guidance to individuals receiving state and federal monies. Today over 750 people receive our services in Washington and Montana. Our services are available to anyone with a disability who desires or requires assistance with financial stability.
Payee Services manages the distribution of funds received from the Social Security Administration, Veterans Affairs, retirement pensions and wages. We assist in filling out essential documents from Social Security, Social and Health Services, Medicare, and other documents that pertain to financial issues. There is a monthly charge for our services.
Each individual we serve is provided a completely individualized financial plan and is invited to be an active participant in their plan. Bill payment and disbursement of client funds is completed in a regular and timely manner. We encourage monthly bills be sent directly to the Payee Services office for accurate bill paying and so that we may interact directly with the vendors on the client’s behalf.
We are audited by and required to annually submit documentation to the Social Security Administration on how all funds are spent and saved.
New Improvements to come!
Coming soon, we will be offering the Life Freedom Card program to our clients. This is a PIN-based Prepaid Debit Card that will provide our clients convenience, security and cost savings. No longer will our clients have to budget 3 or 4 hours to visit our offices for a check. No longer will our remote clients have to wait for a check in the mail. No longer will clients be subject to high fees for cashing checks. Lastly, and maybe most significant to our clients is, that when purchasing groceries, they will no longer appear to be anything other than an ordinary shopper. We are the first Organizational Representative Payee provider in Spokane County to offer this to their clients. We are excited about the convenience it will bring to our customer base as well as the opportunity to expand our services.
