it was a big problem with wells fargo. they and ssa went back and forth. until i opened an account in both my son's and my name AND got a letter from the local SSA office saying specifically i was the designated payee, wells fargo wouldn't take the check, even though it is written to me for him. the local ssa office, the 800 number, etc. kept telling wells fargo they didn't require this nonsense. so, literally, go figure. really pissed me off. esp. since i'm not even spending the money but trying to save it for him.
