A fiscal employer agent is someone whose job is to ensure that your money is spent to
care for you. If you have a fiscal employer assigned to you, it means they will manage
the money you receive in order to pay for your personal expenses.
The Illinois Department of Human Resources
lists the services of a fiscal agent as the following:
A fiscal agent acts as a bank for the individual. Their job is to make sure the funds go
directly to the individual rather than the provider. When you hire a fiscal agent, you get
to choose how your funds are used, how your support services are managed, and you
get assistance with payroll.
Fiscal agents make sure they listen to anything you have to say to them about your financial goals.
You and your employer will work together as a team. Together you will overcome any
obstacles you come across. The relationship that you will build together will help you
live your life. A fiscal employer is someone you can count on to help you anytime.
If you have any difficulties finding what you need, please reach out to your agent or Customer Service (877) 211-3738, and they will be happy to help!
