Now that he is 18, an is now capable to handle his finances the social security administrator is asking me to return to them whatever savings he got from this benefits. What happened to this funds after being return to them?

You can always ask at your local SS office. It will take a while (because everything at the SS office takes a while) but they will answer your question.
Question: How do I go about getting rid of my Payee for Social Security? Basically I'm fed up with paying my rent and my other finances. Then having my payee use the rest of the little amount of money I have for their own personal needs.
What should I do?
Answer: Your first sentence said you are tired of paying rent and other financial obligations as if that is negotiable. Would you rather live on the street? The payee can be changed by calling the social security administration, but it sounds like you need another person to be in charge because you probably do not handle your finances well. If the payee is truly charging you for personal expenses, change payees, but do not take charge yourself unless you're ready to do it responsibly. Handling it poorly could cost you much more than what you're losing now to your payee's personal expenses.
Question: What would you call the party below the payee on a check? What would you call the party below the payee on a check?
What would you call the financial institution that is below the payee?
"Citibank N.A. - One penn's way - New Castle, DE 19720"
And what exactly does this financial institution do? If someone were to commit a forged endorsement on a check, are these the people to talk to?
I can't find a picture of a check anywhere showing banking terms with a picture which is why I had to do this.
Answer: Citibank is where the check was processed at.~

Question: What does a representative payee do with a client's money? I suffer from severe depression and am unable to work. I receive SSI, SSDI, a Veteran's Pension, and my minor daughter gets her own social security check each month for about $350.00. My payee, who is an attorney, pays my rent and utilities, and 2 small bills for items I collect. I get $65.00 a week and $100.00 more for my daughter's birthday, and at Christmas. He has saved $4000.00 dollars for me in the last ten months, but refuses to give it to me. Why? Is he going to send it back to Social Security, and the VA when it reaches a certain amount? Is that required, or even legal? It's my money and I want it. He refuses. Do I have any recourse? Please don't suggest I see a lawyer. They all know each other and are tight like blood.
Answer: yes you could apply for a new payee,.....but if your bills are paid and you get an allowance, and your payee has saved for you 4,000 dollars, it sounds like your payee has done a good job for you,.....and that is your money, in the state of Oregon if you are getting any state assistance you can only have a certain amount of savings,.....so at times you must spend down a certain amount, to keep on receiving the state assistance,.....
Question: How does me being a Representative Payee for my husband's Social Security affect me and the needs that I have? Due to his health problems, I felt the need to handle all the finances.

How do I fill out the Yearly Expense Worksheet when His check goes to my needs as well as vice versa? What is the best way to handle this?
Answer: I am the same way with my son.. whose mother died some years back.....
What you do is track the household expenses.. and split them 50-50... food gas... rent.. everything..
Dont worry if the total spent goes over the amount they ask you to account for....
Question: How does a restaurant owner recover his money from a non payee? I know that if you don't pay your restaurant bill, you are required to wash the dishes in order to make up the cost. However since the regular dishwashers are still employed and therefore earning a salary, how does the restaurant owner recover his cost from the non payee?
Answer: Actually, you're not "required" to wash dishes, and any restaurant owner in his right mind wouldn't let you near the kitchen, you wouldn't be covered by his liability insurance, slip in the water, fall and break your tail, he's on the hook!
All the owner can do is try to identify you then pursue it in court.
Question: How could i be my own payee for my social security income im currently 22 years old? i have a guardian which is my mom and i want to be a payee for my check of 856.00 $.
Answer: First of all, why are you eligible for social security benefits? If it is for a physical rather then developmental or mental disability, you have no problem becoming your own payee. Basically, you need to contact your local social security office and request a meeting with them. During that meeting, you'll be able to demonstrate that you are mentally fit to deal with your own social security (i.e., that you are able to budget, pay your bills, remain solvent, etc. . .). Then you just have to sign the papers showing that you want the payee to be yourself or anyone else you choose. Please note that, even if your disability is based on a mental or developmental disability, you may be able to be your own payee if you can demonstrate that you have good common sense, basic understanding of budgeting, and/or you are receiving the assistance of a social work agency who is willing to help.
However, if your mother is your conservator instead of your guardian, you will need to get the help of a social worker (you probably already have a social worker/case worker attached to your case) and/or an attorney to fight the conservatorship and demonstrate that you are mentally able to lead your own life, even if you need assistance from an agency's social worker.
Question: How does online banking work. Does my bank print a check and mail it to the payee? Or is money wired to the payee from my bank? Doesn't online banking cost the bank money? How come banks don't charge for this service. I'm not naive I know they pass on the cost to me but how?
Answer: Online banking is a bigger term than simply online bill pay. There are several ways your bank can pay your payee - one is that they simply mail a check. The other, if they do a lot of business with the payee, is to simply make an electronic payment (ACH) to your payee - usually places like your electric company. Another way, if the payee banks at the same bank, is to simply deposit money to the payee's account at the bank.
Any of these cost the bank no more than if you had written a paper check or had initiated an ACH/wire transfer and in some cases, costs them less.
Some banks offer these services for free, others don't. One of my banks charges me about $0.65 to send a check from the bank but doesn't charge me to electronically pay someone. Another of my banks charges nothing to send a check but they don't like doing an ACH so they charge me for that.
In the long run, nothing at a bank is free - it will be paid for somehow. Usually with banking fees.
Question: Can a felon on parole be a payee for his father's monthly retirement check from Social Security? I can't find anything on SS website with bars to me being my father's payee?
Answer: Yes you can and the determining factor would be that they do not do a background check so unless you told them they would not know, and the SS employees do not care, but you can call 1-800-772-1213 ans ask anonymously for a direct answer from them.
Question: How would you feel if you got approved for ssi disability and were told you need a rep payee? I don't believe I need a payee one bit. I have been paying my bills and handling my money for 32 years and all of a sudden I am told I need a payee! I am so intimidated that I am thinking about just closing the whole case. Whats your thoughts?
I have 3 kids that someone else has to dictate what can and can't be bought for them. This is ridiculous.
Answer: Did you appeal the decision? I receive SSDI and also receive benefits for my children. I would feel embarrassed and insulted if told I needed a rep payee. Perhaps it's linked to your diagnosis. Just a thought as I know that is sometimes a consideration with all of this disability stuff.
Question: If you have a payee in a disability case can child support still take the lump sum? If the claimant owes back child support but has a payee for the disability will they still take the lump sum away for child support and will the payee be responsible for paying the back child support now?
Answer: So you want to double dip, since you are also getting a retroactive payment from SSD?
Question: If I am an adults representative payee for their SSI check, would I be able to become their guardian? I am the representative payee for someone's SSI check, so legally I am responsible for taking care of them financially, would I have to argue if we both want me to be their guardian? She has a mental disorder and needs guidance, and if I am willing and able, would it be hard to do?
Question: How do I be no longer have a representative payee receive my SSI? I'm in my 20s that I am receiving my Supplemental Security Income (SSI) on the first date of every month from Social Security. So I am a payee who receives my SSI. My mom was a representative payee.
Answer: You have your mom call the SSA 800-772-1213 and report that you no longer need a representative and that you will handle all reporting requirements yoruself.
Keep in mind that SSI is only granted if you are poor. If you have any income or move/change living arrangements, you must supply this information.
Question: What is involved in changing the payee of an SSI account? According to my psychiatrist, I need to go to the SSI building, fill out papers, bring papers to him that he will fill out and then I should become the manager of my own money (which he feels I'm fully capable of). Right now my dad is the payee.
My psychiatrist mentioned that they assess you in the meeting...I guess I'm just wondering all that's involved. Is there anything more you can tell me about the process?
Answer: That's the long and short of it. Your shrink will fill out the paperwork for you, and SSI normally listens to the shrink. If you have to meet SSI, be sure to dress decently, mind your p's and q's, don't get agitated, etc, but above all be honest.
I notice from your other questions you are moving....best of luck!
Question: Is a government appointed representative payee (from Social Services) bound by any confidentiality laws? I recently overheard a social worker/payee discussing personal business regarding several clients with someone who was not associated with Social Services or the Social Security Administration. Said social worker shared information which included client names, financial business (ie. Client so & so doensn't have any funds in his/her account.), and other personal business about them without their consent.
Does a representative payee (from Social Services) have a legal right to discuss their clients' business with whomever they choose?
Answer: They may disclose non-confidential information when outsourcing for aid to their clientele's needs, such as finding financial resources or facilitating client needs. Otherwise they are bound by strict confidentiality policies that cover the disclosure of personal information. They do cover themselves well for this kind of liability though, anyone who signs papers for social services are required to sign release forms. It would have to be a blatant abuse of personal information. I would be very careful about "blowing the horn", on such an incident. As long as you are able to show substantial proof or the person who the information was being directed to is willing to confirm the conversation they had, it could be a very harmful problem for yourself as well. Supervisor's are required to investigate breach of confidentiality, if they have to launch a full scale investigation. It could cost you a lot of time and you could end up looking like the bad guy, instead of a concerned citizen looking out for the welfare of another.
Question: can people file an application to become someones rep payee with out their permission? for instance someone from the county wants to become my rep payee and i feel that they cant do that. has anybody been in this situation before?
Answer: You may want to check with the county courthouse to see if someone has filed to become your conservator. It may be that someone in your family or in the county social services has filed conservation papers regarding your ability to care for yourself financially.
