Current news from the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission:
It’s the Law: Switch to Electronic Federal Benefit Payments Today
Source: U.S. Department of the Treasury, Financial Management Service

If you still receive a paper check for your Social Security or other federal benefit payments, you are required by law to switch to an electronic payment option by March 1, 2013.

It’s fast, free and easy to sign up for direct deposit or the Direct Express® Debit MasterCard® card by calling the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Center at (800) 333-1795 Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST. Wait times are usually minimal. Call now to avoid delays near the deadline.

Choose Your Payment Option Before making the switch, decide which payment option you would like. If you are unsure, you can call the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Center at (800) 333-1795 and a friendly agent will discuss options and help you choose the right one for you. The U.S. Department of the Treasury recommends two electronic payment options:

· Direct deposit. If you have a checking or savings account, sign up to get your money by direct deposit. Your federal benefit payment will go straight into your account on payment day each month. On time, every time.

· Direct Express® card. If you don’t have a bank account or prefer a prepaid debit card, switch to the Direct Express® card. Your money will be posted to the card account on payment day each month. There’s no need to wait for the mail or to make a special trip to cash a check. You can make purchases and get cash back with purchases at no charge anywhere Debit MasterCard® is accepted. There are no sign-up fees, overdraft fees or monthly fees. Some fees for optional services may apply. For information on card fees and features, visit www.GoDirect.org.

If you do not choose an electronic payment option by March 1, 2013, you may be issued a Direct Express® card.
