Dual Payee; When to Use


(1)

For OSIP, REF, and TANF, use a dual-payee check for protective payments if the benefit group has shown they are not able to properly manage benefits meant to meet their needs. Issue the dual-payee check in both the name of the client and the name of the service provider.

(2)

Issue EA checks for shelter, moving costs, property taxes, and home repairs as dual-payee revolving fund checks. The supervisor or branch manager must authorize an exception to this policy in advance.

(3)

To make sure a JOBS or OFSET payment is used to meet a specific need, the branch office may write a dual-payee revolving fund check in the name of both the client and the vendor.
