I am homeless and my payee is not paying my rent as he promise
That's not good at all! I would contact your local SSA office, they can help you switch your payee. If you go here:
you can find a listing of local SSA offices.
My step daughter has agreed to take care of her minor brother who recieves a monthly benefit. Her mother has told her she would allow her to become his payee but claims that she failed to report a changebof address and jow will miss one month of benefits. This is suspicious because the mother is moving out of state in a couple of weeks and we believe she may be lying to her daughter in order to use the money for herself. How can my step daughter find out if her brothers benefit was stopped as the mother claims. And how would she become her brothers payee if her mother is lying?
I would contact the SSA and inquire if the payments would be stopped, at that time you can also have your stepdaughter become her brother's payee by asking them to change his payee.

I have my nephews ex-wife and 4 children living with me they are homeless. Their oldest son receives ssi benefits. For that past 4 months my nephew who is their sons payee has received the ssi check and has not paid anything towards their sons cost of living expense. I took her to ssi office and they wont do anything unless my nephew contacts them and changes it to his ex - wife being the payee since she has the child and he doesn't. Ofcourse my nephew is not willing to do that even though he does not have the child and she does. So on the 1st of the month my nephew will receive the benefits. I have $648 electric bill since the family has been living with me that I can't pay on my own. Also their son needs shoes for school and other things! It doesn't seem right? What can she do?
You could become the representative payee yourself, you would need permission from that child though. I would speak with a representative at your local SSA office regarding this situation. Wishing you and your family nothing but the best.

If you have already gone through the process of changing your payee with the SSA it usually takes about a month. Contact your local SSA office if the change takes significantly longer than that.

I have a representative payee and last month I told her I was moving on the 31st and me and my kids being right in our new home on 1st of August and I told her that housing was paying most of the deposit and she said okay keep me informed so when I found out what my share was for my deposit for the place I told her she said I needed the new lease from the landlord so she can pay my part of my deposit I was like okay so my landlord said okay I will send it to her. So I called her and she didn’t answer the phone and, I left a massage telling her that we move in our place on August 1st and gave her my new address and gave her my new landlord name and number and let her know what my share of rent is. I have least left her with five massages and she hasn’t answered my calls back and my new landlord said he got housing share of the deposit but hasn’t receive my share from my payee. I have called social security office we’re I had originally filled for disability and told them I needed to let them know my change of address and they said my payee is supposed to do that but she hasn’t done a thing and my new landlord wants the money now and I have four kids to keep a roof over there head and one of them is also on ssi and has the same payee as me. I’m in a panic because I don’t need a eviction and can’t be homeless with four kids I do not have no family or friends here and I just don’t know what to do. Please help.
I am sorry to hear that. To change your payee you will have to make an appointment with your local SSA office and do it in person. If necessary they will investigate the situation. Definitely make an appointment as soon as possible.
Hi i have cancer I made her dad the payee now I'm divorcing him , can I change it?
You can change your payee but going to down an SSA office. If you have someone in mind as your new payee, you should try to have them come with you. They will need their Social Security card and a photo ID. If you don't have someone new to be your payee, the SSA can assign one to you.
I no longer need a payee how do I take care of it without my current payee knowing?

Hi Heavenly, If you need to change or appoint a new rep payee, you will have to go to your Social Security Administration field office and request a change of payee.
how do I make my sister the payee.
You will need to do so at an SSA office and will need your Social Security card and a picture ID. SSA offices are closed right now due to COVID-19, so I would call the SSA to see if you can make an appointment to change her payee.
