If you are currently receiving Social Security Benefits as either a capable adult or an emancipated minor, you might want to consider setting up an Advance Designation. 

 "(An) Advance Designation allows you to choose an individual(s) you deem has genuine concern for your well-being to manage your benefits should the need arise."

This is part of the Strengthening Protections for Social Security Beneficiaries Act of 2018.  Below is a link to the Social Security Administration website which gives an overview of the Advance Designation, let's you know how to sign up if you are interested, and a list of what it is not.
