Fiscal Intermediary

"Fiscal" means "having to do with money". "Intermediary" means "in between". A fiscal intermediary is an agency that manages the money allocated by DDD. You do not receive any money directly from DDD, but the fiscal intermediary does, and will pay your support-related bills (mostly your staff wages) with that money.

The Fiscal Intermediary (FI) will:

  • Process all applicable Federal and State forms to enroll the preson as a 'household employer'
  • Screens all potential employees
  • Process payroll
  • Pay vendors
  • Obtain worker's compensation
  • Provide periodic financial reports to the person
  • process quarterly and year-end taxes and financial data
