Want direct deposit?
With direct deposit, the U.S. Treasury sends an electronic message to your bank or credit union crediting your account with the exact amount of your benefit. The difference is, your check isn’t printed or mailed.
If you don’t already have a bank account or you are not sure you can get a bank account, you might like to try a Treasury-sponsored ETA account. Learn more about an ETA account.
