Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Once you started receiving benefits by direct deposit, or applied after 2011 you cannot receive benefits by check any more. You have two options: receive benefit as direct deposit into your own account or request a prepaid card that will be loaded every month. The card works the same ways as any debit card.
