Go Direct Spread direct deposit for the holidays
WASHINGTON (12/14/09)—The U.S. Treasury Department’s direct deposit program,Go Direct, reminds credit union and other national campaign partners that the holiday season is a great time to promote peace of mind through automatic check deposits. “This holiday season, help senior citizens, people with disabilities and others who receive federal benefit checks gain peace of mind,” Go Direct advises in recent published materials. “Encourage them to switch to direct deposit or the Direct Express Debit MasterCard card for their federal benefit payments.” Direct deposit of Social Security or other federal benefits not only helps guard against theft, loss and fraud, it also assures the money will be “on time, every time.” Credit unions can inform their members through lobby displays and newsletters of the easy steps to signing up for the Direct Express® card for Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments by calling 1-877-212-9991 or visiting www.USDirectExpress.com.
