A. When and how to complete question 61

A “YES” response to (b) alerts the interviewer to access the Representative Payee System (RPS) to take the SSA-11 (Request to be Selected Representative Payee). A “NO” response requires an explanation in the remarks section and indicates that representative payee development is needed.
