South Carolina's Federal Benefit Check Recipients Must Act Now To Comply With U.S. Treasury's Electronic Payment Rule

Check recipients can sign up for direct deposit or the Direct Express ® card by calling toll-free 1-800-333-1795 or by talking to their local federal paying agency office. People can also sign up for direct deposit online at The process is fast, easy and free.

  • By taking a few minutes to gather the necessary information ahead of time, most federal benefit recipients can sign up for electronic payments with one brief phone call.
  • Individuals will need their Social Security number or claim number, their 12-digital federal benefit check number and the amount of their most recent federal benefit check. If choosing direct deposit, recipients also will need their financial institution's routing transit number (often found on a personal check), account number and account type (checking or saving).
  • There are no sign-up fees or monthly fees to receive benefits electronically.

Anyone already receiving federal benefit payments electronically will continue to receive their money as usual on their payment day. No action is required.
