The Social Security Administration has a website just on direct deposit. The website encourages us to open an account and make request through the website account. However, I would recommend you to make a phone call to place the order to have your funds directly deposit or change to a different bank or bank account. The two telephone numbers are 1-***-***-**** and 1-***-***-****. Once everything is processed correctly. Then, if you would like to, you can practice open the on-line account.
"For more information regarding switching to an electronic payment, visit Treasury’s Go Direct website or call the helpline at 1-***-***-****."
"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-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****)."
The above link is the Website for Social Security Direct Deposit.
Please feel free to follow up.
