Document Identifier for Word Processor: E3776
A. EXHIBIT LETTER
We have been sending your (1) payments to your representative payee, (2) . Now that you are age 18, we checked to see if you can get your payments directly. However, the information we have shows you still need help managing your money and meeting your needs. Therefore, we plan to continue sending your payments to your representative payee.
Your Representative Payee's Duties
It is your representative payee's duty to manage your money to meet your needs. We will ask your payee to show us how the money was used for you. Also, the payee must report changes that can affect your payments.
If You Disagree With This Decision
If you think you should get your own payments or that someone else should help you manage your payments, you have the right to appeal. You have the right to review the facts in your file and you can give us more facts to add to your file. We will review your case and consider any new facts you have. Then, a person who didn't make the first decision will decide your case.
You have 60 days to ask for an appeal. However, unless we hear from you within 10 days, we will select the representative named above.
The 10 days and 60 days start the day after you receive this letter. We assume you got this letter 5 days after the date on it unless you show us that you did not get it within the 5-day period.
You must have a good reason for waiting more than 60 days to ask for an appeal.
You have to ask for an appeal in writing. We will ask you to fill out Form SSA-561-U2, called "Request for Reconsideration." To get this form, contact one of our offices. We can help you fill out the form.
