Thank you for your question - unfortunately, they cannot give you the bank account number and if you have a payee, they will need to be the one to change the bank account. There is an online fraud form you can file - the agents on the phone at social security really can't do much. However, if your funds are being misused and you have proof, fill out this form -- the inspector general will look into it. It won't be immediate -- they government does work slow. Just stay tenacious and they will make sure everything is taken care of for you.
