You can extend your payee services with Best Payments and designate us as your Authorized Rep with JFS. Many clients take advantage of having Best Payments as their payee and JFS Authorized Rep because some of the reporting requirements and obligations overlap. You can decided and add this optional service at any time.
We treat everyone as an individual and will work with your team to provide options to best serve the needs and abilities of each client and their budget.
One of the options we provide is how your spending money will be made available to you. Our options include a check or a Debit Card or in some cases ACH Credits to your personal bank or debit card.

Often times, there can be a lack of basic financial knowledge about paying bills and budgeting due to a physical, mental or developmental disability. It can be overwhelming for our loved ones to determine how to spend their money while ensuring their basic needs such as housing, utilities, food and medical care are prioritized.

We will provide spending money as agreed upon when we set up your initial budget. You can also request additional funds at any time for unexpected expenses. We will also provide monthly reports detailing income, expenses and available funds to you and your support team.
