Removing a member account from your organization - AWS Organizations

Removing a member account from your organization

Part of managing accounts in an organization is removing member accounts that you no longer need. Removing a member account does not close the account, instead it removes the member account from the organization. The former member account becomes a standalone AWS account that is no longer managed by AWS Organizations. Afterwards, the account is no longer subject to any policies and is responsible for its own bill payments. The organization's management account is no longer charged for any expenses accrued by the account after it's been removed from the organization.
