Electronic payments have been mandated by the federal government since 1999, except tax refunds. A debit card or direct deposit into a bank account is the preferred method of payment for Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients.
It’s critical that you make the changeover from paper checks to electronic ones as soon as feasible.
Direct deposit is the safest and most convenient method of receiving money.
In the event that you lose or have your debit card stolen, you won’t have to worry about it again. You have the freedom to spend or preserve the money as you see proper. According to the Social Security Administration, the service is simple to set up. Direct deposit can be started or changed by logging into your my Social Security account.
