Electronic Payments

Information from the Social Security Administration SSA Publication No. 05-10077.

When you applied for Social Security benefits, you should have signed up to receive your payments electronically.

Direct deposit is a simple, secure way to receive your benefits. Contact your bank to help you sign up. Or you can sign up for direct deposit by contacting us.

You can also choose to receive your payment through the Direct Express card program. With Direct Express, deposits from federal payments go directly to the card account. Signing up for the card is quick and easy. Call the toll-free Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Contact Center at 1-800-333-1795. Or sign up online at www.GoDirect.org. Social Security can help you sign up, too.

A third alternative is an Electronic Transfer Account. This low-cost federally insured account lets you enjoy the security and convenience of automatic payments. You can contact us or visit the website at www.eta-find.gov to get information about this program, or to find a bank, savings and loan, or credit union near you offering this account.

If you don't receive your electronic payment on its due date, call us immediately at our toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213.

If you receive an electronic payment that you know is not due you, have your financial institution return it to the U.S. Treasury Department. If you knowingly accept payments that aren't due you, you may face criminal charges.

Note:  Contact your local Social Security Administration Office for all the latest updates on benefits and filing requirements.
