Electronic payments: the best (and soon only) way to get your benefits
(30 second audio script)
If you receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or any federal payment, you probably get it electronically. If not, that’s about to change. By March first, 2013, nearly all federal, non-tax payments must be made electronically—including Social Security and SSI. You have the option of direct deposit to your bank or credit union account or into a direct express debit card account. Electronic payments are safer, easier, and more reliable. They save taxpayers money and are good for the environment. If you still get your Social Security or SSI payment in the mail, visit www dot go direct dot org today.
