I was curious to see if

I was curious to see if anyone has experienced this or had a similar situation? My husband is representative payee for his brother and he was receiving his direct deposit on Direct Express. After several months and many problems later, he decided to switch to a local bank. But the direct deposit was still sent to Direct Express. The Direct Express is a closed account, but they are still holding his disability funds instead of sending them back to Social Security. We have already contacted Social Security and it has already been a week and Direct Express has still not released the funds. I thought if an account was closed that it was automatically sent back. We cannot afford to keep paying our bills and his, too. Is there anything else that can be done? And, does anyone know how long this may take?

Hi Candi,

Hi Candi,
This seems like a situation that you would need to contact Direct Express about, if you have not already. They may be able to correct the mistake and send the money back to the SSA.

Hi Donna,

Hi Donna,
I would contact the SSA about the time it takes for them to transfer accounts, you can either visit their website at www.ssa.gov or call them at 1-800-772-1213.

How sholud i use her money

How sholud i use her money when my girl is addicted to drugs sex cigarettes please help she is bipoal and autisim do i give her money or mAke here earn it

Hi Michael,

Hi Michael,
I'm sorry to hear about that! If you are a representative payee, the SSI funds that you get on her behalf should be used for treating her medical conditions, basic needs, education, ect. You should track any purchases that you make for this as you will have to account for the money spent, and it's also a good idea to keep these funds in a separate account as well. You are not obligated to give the beneficiary the money directly in any way if you are the representative payee, but it should be used for the purposes that I went over above.

When one child receives SSI,

When one child receives SSI, do their siblings' money count against them?

Hi Jenn,

Hi Jenn,
SSI benefits for children are calculated based off of the parent's income, so the sibling's money may not be counted for the purposes of benefits unless that money was counted as income or a resource.

Hi Rebecca,

Hi Rebecca,
It does take some time for the SSA to process changes in your information, I would contact them for a timeframe for how long you would need to wait for benefits to be deposited in your new account.

Hi Ernest,

Hi Ernest,
As far as having payees assigned, I would get in touch with the SSA and let them know if any benefits your children are receiving are being misused. They can help by assigning a new payee for those benefits. Also, your son can also apply for SSI benefits as an individual, his income and resources would be used to calculate his benefits.

Hi Walter,

Hi Walter,
Unfortunately, the SSA has not issued paper checks since 2011. You would need to contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 and inform them that you closed your direct deposit account.

Hi Janet,

Hi Janet,
Generally that depends on the financial instituition, I would ask your bank how long they hold funds before they clear.

We are in process of switching banks. How long does it take for my SSDI to switch from one bank to another when I switch banks for Direct Deposits? If I change it now will it effect my deposite due to come in on June 8th?

Hi Marie,

Hi Marie,
I would notify the SSA as soon as possible, and I would not close your old account until you see that funds are being deposited in the new one.

Brenda
How many days notice does it

How many days notice does it take to change my direct deposit to a new institution in order to get my funds in a timely manner.

Hi Brenda,

Hi Brenda,
I'm not entirely sure, however I it may be a good idea to keep your prior bank account open until you see the funds deposit in your new account.

I recieve survivors benefits

I recieve survivors benefits on a pay card that I have from work I lost my card, but I can get a new one from work and they can put my work check on the new card the same day, but it will cancel out the old card what happens to my benifits, they will be on the card in a few days

Hi Shae,

Hi Shae,
Depending on how the card works, you may not have those benefits deposited to it. I would contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to let them know about the change in your banking status.
