Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

There are three ways to change your direct deposit information for Social Security.

1. Use your online "My Social Security" account. If you do not yet have an online Social Security account, you can register at the following link:

https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

2. Call Social Security at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

3. Ask your bank to assist you.

Social Security recommends that you do NOT close your old account until you receive at least one payment into your new account.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
