Federal Benefits Will Only Be Paid Electronically: Ensure Your Clients Are Able to Access Their Electronic Federal Benefits
Anyone currently receiving federal benefit payments by paper check is required switch to an electronic payment method by March 1, 2013. The switch to electronic payments is a win-win for federal benefit recipients and for taxpayers. It provides a safer, more secure, more convenient way for Americans to access their federal benefits, while also delivering significant savings for taxpayers.
The Go Direct® public education campaign provides Americans with the resources to transition to electronic payment options for Social Security, Veteran’s Affairs and other federal benefits.
