Yes. You agreed to give your payee control over your funds, if you disagree with how your payee is handling your funds you can contact SSA, however until this is settled this can delay your disability. It is best to talk directly to your payee, she wants to make sure all your debts are paid off and your housing is secure. Things may be a little tight for you right now, but you will soon have deposits paid and then you should see some extra spending money soon.

If you think you can manage the money better yourself you can call SSA office and tell them you do not want a payee.

If you have a payee, that means you're legally incompetent - and your payee gets 100% choice in how the money is spent. So, yes. She can. Making payments on an $81 debt, is really silly, fiscally irresponsible (won't take very long in late fees before that doubles), and I can't see anyone willing to do that. It's not your money. Technically, it's *my* money, because *I* earned it. It was taken from me, and given to your payee to TAKE CARE OF YOU. At no point, has this been your money.

The reason someone else is managing your money is obvious based on how you choose/believe how something is to be paid. Debts are to paid EVERY month, on some type of payment plan that most likely been agreed with the person holding the debt. To state, you want to pay one debt 3 months from now, is stupid? If, you don't pay 1 debt 1 month, then until you pay, can get hounded by telephone calls on when are you going to pay me? In some cases, they can sue you for those debts, which include interest and lawyers fees. She is protecting you, by paying EACH of them per month to avoid this. Just like most of us, after we pay our debts, there maybe not much left over, and that is all we have left for ourselves.
