An AABD or TANF client's legally appointed guardian is their payee for benefits, unless the guardianship is temporary or limited. If the guardianship is temporary or limited, make the guardian the payee only with the client's permission.
If there is a guardian of the person and a guardian of the estate, the guardian of the person designates which guardian is payee.
