SSA Going Paperless in Benefits Distribution to Members
January 25, 2013
Retirees and people with disabilities will be receiving their last Social Security check for the benefits they are receiving.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) will be junking paper checks in favor of electronic bank transfers beginning this March.
Currently, around 5 million people are still receiving checks for their Social Security benefits.
The states that have the most number of paper checks-receiving beneficiaries are Florida, California, New York, and Texas.
For now, Social Security beneficiaries must sign up for Direct Deposit, or a direct express debit card to continue receiving their benefit payments.
However, seniors that were born before May 1, 1921 may still opt to receive paper checks should they wish.
