if these payments are substantial and from the estate of a relative, they should go into a Special Needs Trust. That way it cannot be counted as income.

Besides, any bank account or Check cashing facility, etc. will automatically report deposits to the government so its not like anythings being hidden. All that's happening is delaying the possibility of being charged with benefit fraud.

Exactly. I explained all of this to her last year.
I have a trust set up for my daughter with my life insurance.
I forget what it's called.
It's a special clause in my Will so she can get my insurance and keep her disability benefits.
Chances are, one was set up for Kitty as well.

That’s why I suggested the “check cashing place.”

Could work.

Or get a friend to give you cash for it and they deposit it in their account. Then there are no cheque cashing place fees.
Perhaps you could have your sister bring you to the bank Kitty. If you sign the checks with her at her bank, she'll be able to deposit or cash the check with her bank account. That's what we do when my parents send my girlfriend checks for birthdays & such. She's on SSI but I'm on Disability so only employment income would affect my benefits. I usually deposit the checks & make a payment on one of Cass's credit-cards or buy some things using my debit-card that she wants.

I'd like for someone to deposit me a cheque.
