Interdisciplinary Training for those who Serve Vulnerable Adults and Seniors
Source: Social Security Administration (SSA)
The Social Security Administration (SSA) is pleased to present this Representative Payee Interdisciplinary Training series. It includes useful modules to educate individuals and organizations about the roles and responsibilities of serving as a representative payee, elder abuse and financial exploitation, effective ways to monitor and safely conduct business with the banking community, and ways to recognize the changes in decisional capacity among vulnerable adults and seniors. Although SSA initially developed this training to ensure that representative payees have key information that will assist them with serving our customers, we soon recognized that this training would be beneficial to all who work with or assist the most vulnerable.
