If you would like to stop being a representative payee, you will have to contact the SSA office. The best way to do that is to bring in all parties involved, but that is not always possible. The SSA assigns a payee because they believe that that individual should not be taking care of their own money. If that status has not changed, then a new payee will be assigned.
Can I close out his checking account that is in my name and give him the money. Because I no longer want to be his payee
Since he has a representative payee, the SSA has decided that it would be better if someone else was to handle the money. To switch payees you will have to make an appointment with your local SSA office. This would be best if both parties are there. If the determination is made that he is unable to care for his own money, there will be a new payee assigned.

To change yourself to the payee start by making an appointment with your local SSA office. They will be able to help you switch to yourself of find a new payee.

If you cannot find a family member or close friend to be your payee then a qualified organization may act as a Social Security Representative Payee.
