CSI Overview

CSI, Inc. (Comfort, Security, Independence) is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization which provides protective financial oversight for Hawaii's elderly and disabled populations. It has been doing so since 1987, and currently serves more than 100 Hawaii residents with subsidized or low-cost services on the island of Oahu.

CSI provides fiduciary services to a growing gap group of Hawaii's most fragile and vulnerable residents who do not qualify for assistance with their financial affairs. These are clients who do not qualify for a bank to serve as trustee because they do not meet the asset threshold, but they are not necessarily impoverished. An estimated 80-90 percent of CSI's clients are not eligible for subsidized services through the Office of Public Guardian (OPG). At the same time, these vulnerable clients are all incapacitated in some way; whether by dementia, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's, or other mental and physical limitations. Serving this gap group of clients meets a crucial community need.

CSI provides fiduciary services:
  • Court Appointed Trustee

  • Conservatorship

  • Personal Representative

For most clients, CSI provides Day-to-Day Financial Management including:
  • Bill paying
  • Bank reconciliation
  • Preparing and delivering bank deposits
  • Organizing tax documents and other paperwork
  • Negotiating with creditors
  • Filing court accounting
  • Deciphering medical insurance papers and verifying proper processing of claims
  • Providing referrals to legal, tax, and investment professionals

Q: Does CSI provide social services or nursing care?
A: No. CSI coordinates with these professionals in order to serve the client. CSI can also refer clients to local agencies that provide direct health care and social services.
