On the Distribution Request Form, the Beneficiary indicates the “payee” and where to send the check. The “payee” is the person or company to whom a check is made payable. The payee should be the vendor or provider of the supplemental item or service or a third party if the request is for reimbursement of an item that has been purchased for the Beneficiary.  The check can be sent directly to the payee.  Checks cannot be made payable to the Beneficiary.  Services or items for which requests are made must be for the sole benefit of the Beneficiary.
