My brother has a psychiatric disability and my dad is his payee. Unfortunately, my dad is in very poor health and we all agree that my mom should take over as payee for now as she is still well. How do we do make that change?

Hello I have a few questions.

Hello I have a few questions. My mom does not want my sister as her payee it was me but when she went to visit her she changed everything. I am the person who manages all her bills and her legal power of attorney. My mom is bed written and not able to go into an office so I am not sure how to have this reversed. The person who is currently added as her payee is a long time drug addict and is not in recovery. I am concerned about my mothers bills, health and life insurance. I went into an office today but they were not much help.

Hi Diane,

Hi Diane,

The only way to switch payee's is to contact the SSA. If you already tried going into an office, you can try calling them. Their number is 1-800-772-1213. Best of luck!

My disabled son was in a group home and I took him out. They insisted on being his payee, I went to ssa and changed payee back to me. He has 1500 in his account and they refuse to give it to us, said they are sending it back to ss because they have to, is this true? I think they’re just mad cause I took him home.
