Claiming google+ account

I need to claim my business' google+ account. It is connected to a former employee who is no longer with us. Is it possible to claim the business account as my own? We have access to his account.

Hi @Hannah T


If you have access to the Google account the listing is claimed in, sign in to that account and go here:


And then invite another Google account to be an owner of the listing.


Once the other account has been successfully added you can transfer primary ownership of the listing to that account.


You could then remove the original account as an owner of the listing.


And ideally, the business owner would be the primary owner of the listing. Then he/she could add employees as owners/managers of the listing as needed.
