V.A., Soc. Security benefits going paperless

4-22-2010 - As a federal cost-cutting measure, beginning in 2013 all Veterans benefits checks and Social Security checks will be deposited electronically only. If you're presently receiving benefits, you will have to provide your bank account information or enroll in the government's debit card program after receiving notification from Uncle Sam. Those enrolling for benefits after March 1, 2011 will automatically be enrolled in the direct deposit or debit card program. For more on the new electronic deposit program, click here.
