You can go now go to

From there you create a passworded account for yourself with the SSA. You then login (remember your login details) and click on the link regarding changing your banking information. Be sure to NOT close your existing account until you start to see your deposits going into the new account.

There are other helpful documents, including annual SS earnings statement, 1099, benefits verification, etc. You can also change your address, etc., should the need arise.
