Hello. Thank you for choosing this Q&A service for assistance. My name is Angela. I will be assisting you.

It is such an inconvenience when things like this happens. You can either change your bank account info online or contact a local social security office by phone. In order to change the bank info online, you would need to create an online account with social security if you don't already have one. To create the account, go to the following link;

If you don't want to deal with the online method, you can call the social security office at 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****).

Let me know if you require additional information relating to this matter. If I have addressed your concerns, I ask that you please take the time to scroll to the top of the page and select 3 or more stars to positively rate my response so that I can receive credit for assisting you. Thank you in advance.
