A little help can make a big difference . . . .
The Oregon Money Management Program (OMMP) provides assistance with money management tasks.
Program services are offered to seniors age 60 and over and disabled persons who are at least 18 years of age. There are no restrictions on income or resources, though a modest monthly fee may be applied.
Bill Pay Service
For individuals who remain in control of their personal household finances but need help keeping on track. Bill-Pay clients remain in full control of their bank accounts. They may spend their money in any way that they choose. Core bill pay services include: writing checks for signature, developing a budget, reconciling bank statement, resolving billing issues, setting up on-line banking. This can be either a short term or on-going service.
Representative Payee Service
For individuals who receive federal benefits (such as social security, veteran, railroad benefits, or a federal pension), and have been determined unable to manage their federal funds on their own. This service does not include private pensions unless the individual cooperates with our program in having those funds direct deposited into a MCCOG OMMP account at a local bank.
Income Cap Trust (ICT) Trustee Services
For persons who need an ICT and Trustee as determined by Aging and People with Disabilities.
