Clerks would ask “paper or plastic?” After afew years, the choice disappeared in most places and you simplylearn to expect (and live with) plastic.The federal government, much like the supermarkets, currentlyoffers a choice between paper or plastic (or direct deposit). Asof this past May, new Social Security recipients cannot chooseto receive paper checks. Come March 2013, paper will nolonger be a choice for anyone; the U.S. Department of theTreasury will pay all federal benefit and no-tax payments electronically.Benefit recipients can choose to receive their paymentsby direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or toa Direct Express® Debit MasterCard® card account.Receiving your monthly social security by check in the maileach month is not safe since there are many opportunities forloss or theft between the time it leaves the government and youdeposit it in your bank account. You can take action today bycalling your bank to help you set up direct deposit of your socialsecurity benefits or, if you don‟t have a bank account, youcan call 1-877-212-9991 to sign up for the Direct Express®Debit MasterCard®. If you would like to learn more aboutthese options on the Internet, visit www.godirect.org. You canalso call the Social SecurityAdministration at 1-800-772-1213.
