As of May 1, 2011, you will need to receive your payments electronically – paper checks will no longer be an option. When you apply for federal benefits, be ready to sign up for direct deposit of your federal benefit payments.
With direct deposit, your money will go straight into your FMFCU checking or savings account on payment day each month. You can count on your money being on time, every time.
Be prepared. Before you fill out an application for Social Security or other federal benefits, have the right information in front of you to sign up for direct deposit. You’ll ensure a smooth enrollment process and start enjoying the safety and ease of direct deposit from your very first payment.
