Go Direct® Campaign

Don't let a disaster come between you and your money. If you receive federal benefit payments by paper check, switch to direct deposit through the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Go Direct® campaign. Direct deposit is safer, easier, and gives people more control over their money. Your money goes straight into a checking or savings account on payment day each month, eliminating the risk of a delayed payment due to hurricanes, tornadoes, wild fires or other disasters.

General Program Requirements:
You must currently receive federal checks from any of the following agencies or programs:
- Social Security Administration (SSA)
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Veterans Affairs (Compensation and Pension only)
- Railroad Retirement Board
- Office of Personnel Management

There are also two safe, easy electronic payment options to choose from:
Direct deposit will allow your Federal benefit payments to go straight into your checking or savings account.
The Direct Express® Debit MasterCard® card provides a low-cost alternative to paper checks for Federal benefit payments. Cardholders can make retail purchases, pay bills and get cash back.
For information on switching to direct deposit, Direct Express® card features and fees, visit www.GoDirect.org or call 1-800-333-1795.

Application Process:
You will need to provide personal information to start an automated direct deposit. Enrollment is sent from Go Direct® to the Federal paying agencies.

Applicants can learn more or sign up for direct deposit or the Direct Express® over the phone, online or by mail.
