Form SSA-787, Physician's/Medical Officer's Statement of Patient's Capability to Manage Benefits - also known as SSA Form 787 - is a form used to determine if a person is able to manage funds or they need a representative payee. This form contains information about the patient who receives Social Security benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments. A medical officer or the patient's physician should fill out the reverse of the form. This form is part of the Representative Payee program paperwork.
The most recent version of the SSA Form 787 was issued by the Social Security Administration (SSA) in November 2015 with all prior editions being obsolete and destroyed. Since this form is only mailed to the medical officers or physicians, this form is unavailable for digital filing. An SSA-787 printable form is available below for reference.
