I created a member account using AWS Organizations, but I'm unable to remove it. How can I remove a member account from my organization?

Accounts created through Organizations must be standalone before you can remove them from an organization. To remove a member account from an organization, follow the instructions to remove a member account from your organization. When you remove a member account, you're prompted for the following information:

  • Provide contact information
  • Accept the AWS Customer Agreement
  • Provide a valid payment method
  • Verify the phone number
  • Select a support plan option

Note: AWS Support can't remove a member account on behalf of a customer.

To resolve an "access denied" error or to diagnose common issues, see Troubleshooting General Issues.

Note: If the member account status is suspended, you must reactivate the account before you can remove it. Follow the instructions to reactivate the account.
