Social Security paper checks are “supposed to go away by March 2013”.  “People still receiving checks now can sign up for direct deposit or a Direct Express Debit card.”  “Direct Express Debit card is designed for people who do not have bank accounts.”

For a Direct Express Debit card, people can call 1-800-333-1795 or go to www.GoDirect.org.

There will still be some exceptions to still receive a paper check but, people would need to request a waiver.  Waiver applications can be requested by calling 1-800-333-1795.

There is information on the Social Security Administration’s website www.ssa.gov
