Hi Janice,

Hi Janice,

If you wish to do so, you can remove yourself as a payee. You would have to go down to your local SSA office and do so there.

I want to stop being a payee

I want to stop being a payee for a friend. How do i get out of being it?

Hi Jane,

Hi Jane,

Your friend has to contact the SSA to change her payee.

Concerned Sister
Hello, I am posting this for

Hello, I am posting this for my sister. I need to know who she needs to contact in order to have someone removed from being her payee on her social security benefits. The relationship she was in with her partner was very abusive mentally. My siblings and I are trying to get her out of the situation by finding her a new place to live. While doing so we realized that her ex-partner is actually a beneficiary of her disability which is very odd due to the fact that my sister is very capable of taking care of her own financial responsibilities. I do not know when this it was occurred or why it occurred. Can I talk to someone on on her behalf? Or is this something that she can do on her own. Does she have to go into the office? Or is this something that she can do online. I'm only asking these questions due to the fact that I'm not in the same state as her but I so desperately would like to help her in any way I can't.

Hi There,

Hi There,

To change a payee, it has to be done in person. I believe that the new payee can go in and change the payee without the beneficiary. If your sister wants to become her own, I believe she has to do it. I would call the SSA before just to confirm this though. Their number is 1-800-772-1213.

Also, if your sister decides to become her own payee, just know it will automatically trigger a reevaluation of her case by the SSA.

My husband is my son's

My husband is my son's rep payee he is getting older feels like he needs to get a nother payee for our son, my daughter said she would do it for him. what must we do to change it need your advice does it take very long to make the change.Thank you very much,

Hi Grace,

Hi Grace,

To change your son's payee, your son will have to go to an SSA office and change it in person. If possible, have your daughter go with your son with a picture ID and her Social Security card. Most of the time, the next check gets sent to the new payee. Once in a while, it does take a little longer though.

I have been my daughters

I have been my daughters representative payee for many years. She is diagnosed as bipolar with depression and social disabilities
She has been in programs since she was 12 or 13 and I have maintained and reported yearly as required.

She is now 18 as of September 5, 2018. I no longer wish to be her payee representative. I cannot be responsible for her money and there is a strain relationship. She is still under DMH and are looking for a group or step down adult home run by DMH. She is now getting her checks directly in her name and as of yet have not given it to her. She opened an account today so she can take care of her own.
I need an answer as soon as possible as I didn't realize I would still be considered payee representative when she turned 18 and checks were in her name. Do have to get her set up for direct deposit I guess.
How do I handle this? I really wish to revoke my payee representative status.

Hi Kathy,

Hi Kathy,

If possible, have your daughter go to an SSA office to change her payee as she has to do it in person. They can assign her one if need be. Just know, if she decides to become her own payee, the SSA will likely reopen her case and may take away or reduce her benefits.

Lorie
My husband is my sons payee

My husband is my sons payee he is getting a little forgetful wants to know how long it would take to change to a new payee. He has someone that will take over.

Hi Lorie,

Hi Lorie,

Your son will have to go to a local SSA office and request to change payee in person if possible. If the new payee can go as well, that will make it much easier.

Hi There,

Hi There,

In order to do that you will have to to schedule an appointment at your local SSA office.

How do I stop being my

How do I stop being my brother's payee, it's too stressful?

Hi There,

Hi There,

If your brother goes to an SSA office, he can change his payee. If he has someone new in mind, he should bring thing (the new payee should have a photo id and Social Security card). If he does not have someone new in mind, the SSA can appoint someone.

He and his mother will need to go to their local SSA office to change a payee. His mom should bring a photo ID and her Social Security card with her to help speed up the process.

Hi Linda,

Hi Linda,

If you don't wish to you a representative payee for your son, you should notify the SSA at your local office. A SSA rep will assign another person to do so.

Hi Joi Jolly,

Hi Joi Jolly,

The person you are a payee for can do to the SSA and change his payee to himself. It has to be done in person.

Hi,

To switch the payee you should visit your local SSA office. The process will be even smoother if both you and your mother are present at the appointment.

I am a payee for my cousin

I am a payee for my cousin and I'm moving out of town for a new job and my cousin has a warrant for his arrest how can i stop being his payee?

Hi There,

Hi There,

I believe you can be removed as the payee and have a new one appointed by visiting your local SSA office. I'd call ahead to make an appointment. You can also call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to find out more information about the process.

I was my daughters payee for

I was my daughters payee for approx 1 year. She has borderline personality disorder and has impulsive behavior. She started giving me a very hard time about always wanting more money so I turned the payee over to the state. She has been really good now for approx 5 months and is begging me to once again be her payee. I am willing to give it a try. Since I was her payee before how do I become her payee again? The bank told me I just need a statement from you to get things going.

Hi Ronald,

Hi Ronald,

You can become her payee by visiting your local SSA office. Your daughter will have to go with you. You'll need your Social Security card and a valid picture ID. I'd suggest you also make an appointment before going!

Hi,

Hi,

To change your son's payee, you will have to make an appointment with your local SSA office. The process tends to go more smoothly when all parties involved are present at the meeting. If you have a new representative payee in mind, if possible, they should be there.
