The Office of Finance's Division of Administrative Payments services SSA's vendor community by providing accurate and timely vendor payments in accordance with federal laws and regulations.

For the convenience of our vendors, we offer an online Direct Deposit Enrollment Form-3881 that can be filled in on your computer and printed. Visit our signup page for the information necessary to enroll in direct deposit. The form can be faxed or mailed to the Office of Finance.

We are pleased to also offer our vendors the Financial Interactive Voice Response (FIVR) System. FIVR is an automated self-service telephone system available 24 hours a day that allows direct electronic access to administrative payment information using the telephone keypad. Vendors providing goods and/or services to SSA can obtain the most current payment processing activity by using the telephone. For more information visit our Customer Service page
