"FA is always quick with responses and willing to help anytime we ask for it. In large part because of FA, the bill paying process is finally coordinated."

"You are Working
You have many clients
Are some big money giants
Protective payee...its a new science
Do you have a good alliance
You make sure they have an appliance
Some shoot back in defiance
You produce much reliance.
You make sure of a needed crib
Possibly many a bib
You don't fall for any glib
An out and out fib
You put down his royal nib
Some get under your bothersome rib
Put it in writing - do not ad lib
Prime rib - yikes prime rib
Many a meaty spare rib
Good for goodness sake - all for women's lib.
Its really judicial
For all concerned - it is beneficial
It is not prejudicial
Nothing is superficial
I do protective payee work in no way unofficial."
