Finally, if you already get benefits and you have a bank account, you can sign up for or change your direct deposit by:Setting up a my Social Security account and starting or changing your direct deposit online (Social Security benefits only);Contacting your bank, credit union or savings and loan association; orCalling Social Security at 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****). If you currently do not get Social Security or SSI benefits, but plan to apply, sign up for direct deposit when you apply for benefits. Have your checkbook or a copy of your bank statement with you when you apply for benefits
