how do I stop being representative payee?
I have been my brother's re-payee(sp?) for several years and feel that he is more than capable of handling his own money. What is the process to change this arrangement?

Representative Payee
Typically, the SSA assigns a representative payee to individuals that they feel are not capable of caring for themselves or handling their own money. If this changes, the disability recipient must provide the SSA with proof that he or she is now capable of receiving their own disability checks. This proof can be in the form of an official statement from a doctor or the court. The SSA will also consider other type of evidence that proves your brother's condition has approved. It is important to note that if you and your brother prove that he is capable of caring for himself, it is likely that the SSA will reevaluate his eligibility for benefits.
