Social Security is switching to electronic payments for benefits. The Social Security Administration states that you must sign up for direct deposit of payments by March 1, 2013. You can do this online or at your bank. In addition, if you are already getting benefits by paper checks, you can contact the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Center at 1 (800) 333-1795 (English) or 1 (800) 333-1792 (Spanish).
