Social Security Disability Lawyers

Date: May 22, 2014

As of March of 2013, the U.S. Department of Treasury will require that all Social Security benefeciaries’ federal check payments be made either on a debit card or by direct deposit.  Certain exceptions will apply, namely, for those who are able to emonstrate that direct deposit would cause a hardship as well as for recipients born before May 1, 1921.
