I have worked closely with this organization for 5 years and I have not had any serious issues concerning mismanagement of our clients funds. We have three homes in the Atlanta area and two in Savannah. They manage all of our homes. We have had other payee services in the past that was o.k, but lack that personal quality that I think is important for our business and clients. For a while I did not know Mr. Billings was the owner of the company he works just like the rest of the representatives of the company. Coming from a social service background I learned how to work closely with payees. We are opening three more homes and Peoples Choice will be the Payee for them as well. Great company! If you are a Personal Care home I recommend you try the service.

I've been a client with peoples choice for 2yrs and its been great. I really like the personal touch they provided by coming to the Social Security Office in my area, seeing a face really helped in my choosing this organization. They pay my bills on time and send me a weekly allowance. Before I was homless and broke without Peoples Choice help I would have remained on the streets. They helped me find a place to stay that I could afford. My life is better now, thanks to People Choice.

I worked with Social Security for over 25 years, I'm retired now working as a consultant to help payee organizations in Georgia. I served People's Choice Payee Services for 5years and not once were they incited for stealing money. Like many payee organizations they receive a lot of compliant from family members who often times show no interest to the claimant for long periods of time, no phone calls anything. They show up with many questions thinking the claimant has large balances in their accounts . The organizational payee cannot and should not share any information with out power of attorney. Claimants make complaints when the organizational payee does not give their funds the way they prefer. The organizational payee is responsible for managing funds according to Social Security not the claimant. People's Choice Payee Services is a good service if they were stealing money they would not be able to continue as an organizational payee. I will give them four stars and highly recommend them to anyone that needs a payee.

This place is HORRIBLE! I have a client that use PEOPLE'S CHOICE....My client is homeless and this organization refuses to give her any money. I was told to send in her lease and invoice for furniture and that funds will be released NOT! My office sent in everything that was requested. I was told just today there will be NO funds released. The funds belong to our client so give her the money! all she want to do is get a place to live. I'm the Operations Manager for the Homecare Agency that take care of the client. We have taken care of her for weeks. This company including (the Owner) has lied over and over again to me about serval things. I feel like PEOPLE'S CHOICE has taken advantage of this client and her money. The owner had knowledge of this client living in the Salvation and has done NOTHING but refuse to give the client her money to move. I also received a transaction by client report from the owner girlfriend or wife which was very misleading based on phones calls with the owner. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! I'm reporting to the BBB , Social Security, Adult protective services, and others.

They took money from my account from 2009-current. They paid some if it back so quickly and we working on getting the other charges credit back. If you have a family make sure you ask for detailed accounting records, it shows everything. You have that right, get involved just don't let a company like this have control and no one watching over the money!

I have three family members with this organization and for the most part I have had no problems with them. They send their money on time and make sure the rent is paid and utilities. My brothers love this company they don't want anyone else to manage their money. I don't have time to take them to get groceries sometimes due to my schedule, however I call the office and ask could someone take them shopping and they do. GREAT ORGANIZATION

Fish8012008 I do not know what you are talking about because People's Choice always keep good record and if you ask Social Security they will tell you the same thing. When I ask Social Security about my brother Social Security highly recommend them to me because they keep good paper trail. My experience with People's Choice as been a wonderful experience my brother loves them and I do to. Every Christmas they make sure my brother is able to go shopping by helping him save his money thru out the year. I will recommend this company to any body that needs help.

WE WENT INTO THE OFFICE ON BE HALF OF A FAMILY MEMBER AND ASKED FOR A FININCIAL REPORT. WE SAW SEVERAL ERRORS REGARDING MONEY, THEY COULD NOT ACCOUNT FOR WITH RECEIPTS. THEY SAID THEY WOULD PROVIDE CANCELLED CHECKS AND AS OF TODAY THEY HAVE NOT DONE SO. I FEEL THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF OUR FAMILY MEMBERS MONEY WITHOUT RECEIPTS TO BACK THEM UP, WE AR CONSULTING WITH AN ATTORNEY NOW. THEY DON'T HAVE A MISSION STATEMENT,SO THEY ARE NOT FOR THE PEOPLE. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO ASK FOR FINICIAL LEDGERS, WITH THE FAMILY MEMBERS PERMISSION. THEY WILL PAY BACK THE MONEY THEY COULD NOT ACCOUNT FOR!
