The Oregon Money Management Program (OMMP) is funded by the Oregon Department of Human Services and offered statewide through regional sponsors.
Regional sponsors choose which services to offer in their areas.
Services are free for seniors and people with disabilities who have limited resources. Most services are provided by trained and supervised volunteers who work one-on-one with each senior. Paid staff may also provide services.
Consumers can be enrolled in more than one OMMP service. At a minimum, program participants should be contacted monthly.
Bill-pay Service - Bill-pay service is for consumers who have the capacity to make decisions about their personal finances but need help keeping on track. Bill-pay service can be short-term (1 to 3 months) or long-term, to meet the consumer’s needs.
Payee Service - Payee service is for consumers who do not have the capacity to manage their own federal benefits such as Social Security and VA (Veterans) benefits. Regional sponsors apply to become the payee for the consumer’s federal benefits and volunteers are appointed to manage day-to-day financial tasks.
Income Cap Trust (ICT) - ICTs help people who need Medicaid services but who are not eligible for Medicaid because their income exceeds the Medicaid income cap. ICTs allow consumers to become eligible for Medicaid because their income is directed to a trust account that they do not control, and is not counted as a resource. Regional sponsors become the trustee for ICTs and may appoint volunteers to manage the day-to-day financial needs as outlined in the trust.
