There are three ways to accomplish what you want to do.
1. The easiest way is to check with the bank where the new account is that you want your benefits deposited. The banks often offer this service for their customers.
2. You can call the Social Security Administration at 1-***-***-**** and ask them to make the change. The only problem with this is the wait on "Hold" can be very, very long.
So, if that's the case, you can see if your local Social Security office publishes a phone number (some do, some don't). You can use this link to determine that:
3. The last way, and most direct method if your bank doesn't offer the service is to make the change yourself online. In order to do that you will need to go to ssa.gov and set up a "My Social Security" account. Once you do that, you will see that there are a number of things you can do and information you can obtain through that website. One of the options is to change the bank account information where your benefits are deposited.
