Q. I have relatively modest land and no family living nearby. How can I find a local bill payment service or bookkeeping company to pay my monthly bills? Who will oversee them? Are there any government agencies to assist seniors in this situation? A large local bank with a bank charges approximately $2,000 to $3,000 annually for this service.
A. The fees you mentioned are quite reasonable given the services provided by the bank’s trust department. This is especially true considering that no one at the bank will steal from you or act in a way that is not in your best interests.
