Don’t lose your benefits – Go Direct!

The Countdown has begun!

If  you get social security, veterans benefits, or other federal payments, you may miss out soon if you don’ t register for direct deposit by Mar. 1st.*

All people collecting social security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement, or Department of Labor (black lung) will need to either go to  or call 1-800-333-1795 to set up direct deposit of their checks or receive a Direct Express card if recipients don’t have a checking account. The deadline is March 1, 2013.

If you don’t have a checking account and are not able to obtain one, make sure to ask the 1-800 service rep how to use the card to pay your bills.

*There are exceptions:  Automatic waivers are granted to people born on or before May 1, 1921 and waivers can be obtained by calling Direct Express.

If you want to inquire with our Housing Director, Toni Jones, she’d love to assist you on your way so that there are no hiccups in your payments.
