Good morning, you will want to go to ssa.gov/myaccount

From there, you can create a passworded account and after doing so, you can change your direct deposit, mailing address, etc. I would urge you to NOT close your old account until you see the money going into the new one. Otherwise, you may suffer what others have - your moneys are send to the old closed bank, who then returns it to the SSA, and it takes MONTHS to fight with the SSA to get it back. Just avoid that by waiting.
