It's Safe...


When you use Direct Deposit, you can rest assured that your money is safe. Since your money goes directly into the bank in the form of an electronic transfer, there's no risk of a check being lost or stolen. In fact, since 1976 when Direct Deposit first became available to Social Security beneficiaries, not one payment has ever been lost.

Direct Deposit - Simple, Safe, Secure
