    If one have a Power Of Attorney register thru the court for a elderly person . When one goes to Social Security with the person to manage the elderly person finance thru Social Security, well that person will be by Social Security as a tutor or a payee. Hope to hear from someone soon. Thank You.

    If you have power of attorney for a beneficiary who is found incapable of managing their own benefits, you must still file an application to serve as rep. payee with the Soc. Sec. Admin.

    That person is a Rep Payee. They should go to the bank and start a Rep Payee account.
