However if you have email support enabled in your Adsense account, you can persuade Adsense customer support to rectify your payee name or even change it to someone else’s name in your family.I am from India and very recently i had my Adsense account’s payee name changed to my surprise the entire process took just two days.

As i said before you will need to have email support enabled in your Adsense account, otherwise you won’t be able to contact Adsense customer support. As far as i know Adsense customer support are the only one who can make changes to your payee name.

Adsense strictly prohibits its publishers from selling or trading their Adsense accounts, however you are allowed transfer your Adsense account to a family member as long as you have a valid reason.
Once you have a valid reason, next you will have to provide government id proofs for both you and your family member in whose name you want to change your Adsense account payee name.

Now you will have to reply to the mail with the required government ID proof and wait for another 24 hours and finally you shall have your Adsense account payee name changed.
