I currently receive SSI for my middle son, it comes to me in the form of a check. How do I get this to be direct deposit into my checking account?

How far ahead do I need to let Social Security know that I'm changing bank accounts so that I am sure that that gets in there

Hi Lilian, I would let them know at least 60 days ahead, and I would make sure to keep your old account open until you see that the SSA has deposited money in your new account.

Hi D,
Generally, the SSA pays back pay four months after you start receiving monthly benefits.

Hi Will,

I would not count on that quick of a turn around. Make sure that your old account is still open so you can receive your money. You can always call the SSA to confirm your details. I would expect the account to be switched by the following pay period.

I do not have a checking account. Can my disability check be direct deposited into someone else's bank account? And can my student loans be taken out of someone else's account.

Hi Tracey,
Generally, if you do not have a checking account, the SSA may issue you a debit card where they deposit the benefits. I'm not really sure how your student loans would work.

Hello my bank acct was closed for which I get my benefits too. The bank said they sent the money back to social security. Does ssi automatically send you a check after trying to deposit to a closed acct. and how long does this process take

Hi Barbara,
the SSA does not issue physical checks any longer, they generally use a debit card or direct deposit to distribute funds. I'm not entirely sure how long the process would take exactly, as it will vary with how fast the SSA is able to process the benefits and return it to you.

Hi Kathren,

If you have chosen to receive your payments by direct deposit to a bank, credit union account, or Direct Express Debit MasterCard card account, you can call the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Center at 800-333-1795 for more assistance. Hope this helps!

Hi Charlie,
You may find it deposited in your account around the same time, though bank processing times do vary.

Hi there,
If a full month goes by and you still haven't heard back from the SSA, I would consider calling them and asking where the payment it. They can unfortunately take a long time to process.

How long does it take for direct deposit of benfits to change from one account to another for social security disability benefits to take

Hi Lisa,
It may depend on the bank. Regardless, I would wait to close the original bank account untill you confirm that the changes have taken effect.

I have been receiving supplemental Security income on Direct Express debit card since they took our paper checks away. I just wanted to let everyone know that are funds backed up in case something was to happen. My Spouse had gone to get money orders to pay the rent one came up behind him with a crowbar and hit him in the side of his Temple of his head and robbed him. He was missing for 2 hours and when he drove up got out of the truck I started screaming he totally looked like the Elephant Man on one side he didn't hold know who we were didn't even know what happened to him please show them in the mirror but he couldn't see what we were seeing he kept saying his head hurt bad we called an ambulance he would not go to the hospital he has never been in one I had to sign a paper stating if he died in the middle of the night it wasn't on their fault. The next morning my son talk to him going to the hospital and my stepdaughter as you would call her I found her on the streets wondering when she was young and took in as my daughter. To make a long story short why I was waiting for the city to be done on him she went back to my apartment got into my purse and stoled my spouse's Direct Express debit card what he got his retirement by the time I realized what happened was the next morning when I went to pay the bills with it since my money was robbed and there was $900 missing I called the police call Direct Express they told me the location of where the money was being deduct it from the ATM. I've got a hold of Direct Express third level that's where they investigate if you report someone has taken your card besides that taking 90 days it's a process I have the police report and the papers and the pictures from the Circle K is that she used to that yes I pressed charges on her even though I love her and you know what the results was when it came back even though I did not give her permission to even go back to the house and get in my purse and take his car. It was because I know the person she had access to my purse and they did not credit his money back so they are no good when it comes to the dispute Department they're not working for Social Security than working for the bank of course. Hell he never was reimbursed for that even after we file charges and had the proof just because you know a person and you did not give them authorization to get into your purse does not give in to the right deny backing up your funds. I could not believe this I had all the information and they're going to deny this because I knew the person and I was at the hospital being told that his brain was swelling and they hit him so hard that his brain should and the other side of it there was a 50 cent piece in the front that died this was a double kick to that poor man I just can't conceive how these people can be and yes they are rude not all of them then the majority. I need a bank that is one of that my funds up in case something like this ever happen again which I pray to God it never does I want to know it's Chase Banking is a good place for me to put my funds in a direct deposit there I live in Avondale Arizona and I would appreciate your because I will not stay with direct express any longer thank you so much and I recommend everybody to get your money out of its not even in a bank so off that card

Hi Linds,
I'm sorry to hear that! It is important to note that the Direct Express Card is not a bank account and may not have the protections that a bank account does.

Hi Tamara,
Unfortunately I could not say as the wait time will vary depending on the bank and the speed of the US Postal Service.

I was told when I first got my disability check, if I would directly deposit into my checking, that it would go in on The 2nd at midnight, not on the 3rd.has this change?

hi Glenn,
I'm not sure if this has changed, but different banks have different processing times for deposits. The SSA may have deposited it at midnight of the second, but your bank may not make the funds available instantly.

Hi Ned,
I really could not say for sure as transactions take longer at different banks. Additionally, it may vary based on the types of benefits that you are receiving.

Hi Pearlie,
I'm not really sure what you're referring to reply changes, but if you need to respond to some communications from the SSA, they generally specify a response time in the communication.
