I receive social security benefits on behalf of my 17 yr old

I receive social security benefits on behalf of my 17 yr old daughter. Her benefits will end next May, when she turns 18. Recently, beginning in July, she decided to start spending nights at her boyfriends' parents' house, but still has some of her belongings in my house. I still pay a mortgage with the benefit payment each month, as well as credit card payments, car repair bills, clothing and supplies whenever she needs them....and now she's threatening to report to social security that she is no longer living in my house that I provide for her, just so she can start receiving "her" checks, instead of me. All this because she has destroyed her car engine, and I refuse to help pay for it, so she wants HER money. My question is, IS SHE ENTITLED to these checks?

I have three major Diseases and my old payee is harassing me making me sicker. Excuse my writing I need glasses. I know o repeated myself, because I'm very upset

STORY: I am currently receiving SSDI, based on my own work

HISTORY:I am currently receiving SSDI, based on my own work history/credits.I became 100% disabled at the age of 39, due to a medical illness contracted while on assignment in Asia. Upon return to the States, my income was sufficient enough to provide me with roughly $2200.00 monthly in SSDIbenefits, less Medicare part A& B premiums.Due to my medical assessment, I was diagnosed under 12.02 due to cognitive loss from viral meningitis, inclusive of severe depression. I have a Masters Degree in International Business, and have severe difficulty on recall and short term memory functions, making my ability to perform in my prior occupation of an International Consultant impossible. My ability to transfer skill sets to another job, or retrain due to my cognitive loss, is also impossible.At the time of my diagnosis, and treatment, the SSDI appointed Doctor, recommended that I have a Representative Payee,( who is my significant other.) We never contested this issue, however there is a concern there, as My significant other is 23 years my senior.CONCERN:I have the SSA form to remove a Representative payee, and have an upcoming appointment with my doctor. I have been utilizing an excel spreadsheet to assist in tracking monthly bills, to assure financial responsibility, as well as the timely monthly payment of bills.QUESTION:While the SSA Form stipulates it will not affect payment of benefits, and there is much discussion on the web of IF removal of a Representative Payee will spark a revisit of my medical history, What is the Official "unspoken " process that occurs in an adult who requests the removal of a rep payee?Also, as my medical , cognitive condition has not, nor is expected to get better I am on the 7 year revisit plan with SSA, which just occurred in Jan of 2016. Will this have any impact, ?. Neither my spouse nor i really want to spark an ugly issue or risk the loss of benefits due to this, but we are also trying to protect my future and freedoms of choice, as there are no other rep payees we could appoint in the event of my spouses death, as he is over 70 at this point with medical conditions himself, (no family nor children)Please advise
