Two options are available to receive federal benefits electronically: prepaid debit card or direct deposit.
People who receive federal benefits by paper check have until March 1 to switch to electronic payments by March 1.

The federal benefits affected are:

Social Security

Supplemental Security Income

Veterans Affairs

Railroad Retirement Board

Office of Personnel Management

Department of Labor (Black Lung)

There are two options for receiving benefits electronically.

1. Direct Deposit: The U.S. Treasury deposits benefits directly into your bank account. You can sign up for direct deposit in one of these ways:

Enroll online.

Visit your bank or credit union.

Call 1-800-333-1795, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Contact the local office of the agency providing your federal benefits.

Enroll by mail.

2. Prepaid Debit Card: The U.S. Treasury deposits your benefits directly to a debit card. This is an option if you don't have a bank account and do not want to open one. You can request a debit card by calling 1-800-333-1795, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Be ready with the information you'll need to set up your federal benefit payments by direct deposit or debit card.
