I need to change my payee name, I have asked in Google Adsense product forum one of top contributor replied me:

"You will have to close the account & apply again with using your real payee name. That's why they specifically state that the payee name needs to match the full name on your bank account." https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/47333?hl=en

This makes sense, but got few question because the support page do not have sufficient content to help me. My questions are:

  • What happens when you close your Adsense account?
  • If I apply again, then what will be the process to re-gain my account? I mean should I have to apply for a website again, then Adsense team will review and approve that?
  • Is there any chance to disapprove my account?
  • What about current check? I have two check in my hand. So, is Google will send those check again to me with my new payee name?

Anyone experienced this problem?

I have asked it on Google Forum but got no answer!

Sorry you did not get any answer on Google's Forums! Hopefully this helps...

What happens when you close your Adsense account?

The AdSense account you currently have will no longer generate you money when you switch to a new account. I suggest getting the information that you currently have off of your current AdSense account (if you can still retrieve this information) by taking screen shots of information and exporting the information that you currently have throughout your AdSense account. This way when you create a new account you will be prepared to set it up just like the old AdSense account. The account you are using now will need be closed and a new account will need to be created because of the Payee Name situation. You will basically have to start over with your AdSense account but make sure you get all of the information from your current AdSense account that you need to setup a new account.

If I apply again, then what will be the process to re-gain my account? I mean should I have to apply for a website again, then Adsense team will review and approve that?

Yes, they will review it and either accept it or reject it. Unless you have done something that is against Google's policies you should have no problem with this. I would contact customer support and get their attention. Get everyone you can "in the know" and has an understanding of your situation. This way, if it is possible to migrate your current AdSense account settings to your new account you will be in good shape.

Is there any chance to disapprove my account?

I do not think so, unless you were directly violating their Terms and Conditions that you agreed to.

What about current check? I have two check in my hand. So, is Google will send those check again to me with my new payee name?

Number one, keep those checks and wait until you hear word from Google by telling them you have two checks that you need resent under your new Payee name. Get a hold of a Google Representative he or she should be able to work something out with you on the checks; so long as you have not tried to cash them. You will need to contact the AdSense billing department and explain your situation. You can also contact them at the AdSense Contact button on this page.

Google will more than likely restore your old account and have you use a different log-in with your name as the payee. If you have not violated any of the Terms of Service Google will be happy to assist you, in most cases, in my experience -- the downside is that it may take a while for them to get to you.

Thanks, i have hold the account for above circumstance. So, if i create a new account and close my old one, then how the money will be transferred in my new account? –  rakibtg Jun 13 '13 at 2:58
    
I'm not sure that they money will be transferred to your new account, contact Google's support team for answers to that question since you say they have already mailed you checks. –  toughskin Jun 13 '13 at 13:10

I closed an account. Any money over the minimum payment threshold should be paid to you directly. If you have money that is below the payment threshold you will lose it. They won't transfer your money to your new account. –  moomoochoo Dec 3 '13 at 1:20
