If you're signed in as the management account of an organization and want to remove an invited account that you can't access, then first create and assume an AWS Organizations administrator role for that account. For more information, see Creating the OrganizationAccountAccessRole in an invited member account.

The management account can restrict which accounts can leave the organization. If you get an error message such as an "access denied" when removing your account from the organization, contact the owner of the management account.

You might be prompted to provide additional information for the account that you're removing from the organization. You must complete the following actions before you migrate to a standalone account:

When you remove a member account from an organization's consolidated bill, the management account is responsible for all charges incurred by the member account until the time the account is removed from the organization. The member account is liable for all charges incurred after the account is removed from the organization.

Note: AWS Support can't remove a member account from an organization on your behalf for any reason.
