The payee indicates that he receives his mother's benefits. He cashes the checks and
turns the full amount over to the nursing home (his mother's custodian). The nursing
home takes care of all his mother's needs and gives her $10 a week for personal spending.
The payee is acting as a conduit for the nursing home. He is not exercising control
over the funds, cannot accurately account for their use and is in no way verifying
that the nursing home is providing for his mother's needs. Development is necessary
to question the use of the benefits and determine whether a change of payee is needed.
