You can call your social security office and tell them you want a direct deposit for ssi benefit for your midle son. You have to give them your routing number and your checking number to deposit it to your checking account automatically.

Hi Danford,
You may want to contact the SSA regarding this, we are not affiliated with them or the federal government so we would be unable to alter your banking information with them. You can do so by contacting the SSA at 1-800-772-1213.

Hi there,
I could not say, bank transfer times can vary by institution. It may be a good idea to keep any accounts where you receive benefits open until you confirm that the SSA is depositing benefits in the new account.

Hi Trina,

If you already are receiving benefits, you can create a my Social Security account and start or change Direct Deposit online. You also can sign up at your bank, credit union, or savings and loan. Or call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).

I can't say for sure, you would have to a talk to a representative from your bank regarding that.

Hi Art,
I really could not say, if it is undeliverable, the SSA may retain it. It may be better to keep any bank accounts that you received benefits into open until you have confirmed that your banking information was changed by the SSA and benefits have been deposited into the new account.

Hi Diane,
I really could not say as processing times vary between financial institutions and as such the time they take to process benefit deposits varies.
