Summertime's the Right Time for Electronic Payments
(60 second audio script)
Summertime’s a good time to think about electronic payments. These days, the best way to get your benefit payment is electronically. Whether you receive Social Security or SSI, you can depend on your payment arriving to your bank account on time, every time. If you don’t already have direct deposit, there are a lot of good reasons to get it. For one, you’ll save time and money for yourself and the government. Second, fewer paper checks, envelopes, stamps, and less fuel mean less waste and pollution — and that’s good for the environment. Skip the bank line and go online.
