Exceptional Opportunities, Inc. Accreditations & Surveys
Social Security Conducts Representative Payee Audit

On April 26-27, Mark Arzate, Social Security Administration auditor from Kansas City, reviewed the beneficiary accounts of those for whom Exceptional Opportunities serves as Representative Payee. During the exit meeting, Mr. Arzate noted that “Exceptional Opportunities takes no fee for the service of being payee, and does an excellent job of it.” No math errors were found and “the accuracy was there, every penny spent is accounted for.” In visiting with the Fort Dodge Social Security office prior to the audit, Mr. Arzate noted that “EOI came out on top; communication is good, reports are always timely, and nothing is ever left outstanding. This is the first review I have done in a year where there have been no errors and zero issues.”
