Technically, anyone can deposit money into any account. However, social security advises that you have your own account, this ensures ownership and control by you. It also ensures only their deposits will post there, avoiding mingling funds.The account of another person is presumed to be theirs, it can be closed at any time by the owner of the account or another caregiver, should one arise. It can also be receiving other deposits, which would put your own at risk. The account could be closed if the account owner were to die, and the money therein could be sent to the state, again putting your money at risk.Lastly, it is simply bad practice for a fiduciary, someone taking care of someone else, to comingle funds and use their accounts as if they're yours. It exposes you to all sorts of financial risks and liabilities, and accusations of fraudulent conduct.

It's just important to know those risks come with putting your own money in someone's account. But those are risks one can choose to assume.
