911 ... What's Your Emergency?

Sometimes beneficiaries become violent or incoherent or upset beyond your abilities. Do you call the police or try to handle the matter on your own?

Budgeting for Disasters: Lions, Tiger and Hurricanes 
Shirley B. Whitenack
Last year was quite the year for hurricanes, but disasters of all kinds can happen at any time. You have a budget for your beneficiary. But then disaster strikes and blows your budget out of the water. These are some federal programs that may help with natural disasters, and hopefully the beneficiary's property is insured. What do you do now?

Trust but Verify:  When Your Beneficiary Tries to Play the Trust Administrators
Megan Brand and Mary Alice Jackson

The beneficiary makes up a receipt for reimbursement for a purchase never made. You name it, someone has tried it. What do you do to prevent this? What happens if something slips through? 

4:45 - 5:00 p.m. EDT
