iGo Directi releases new PSA
WASHINGTON (7/31/12)--The U.S. Treasury's Go Direct campaign has developed a new public service announcement that outlines the three steps federal benefit recipients can take to receive their funds through direct deposit, and the Direct Express Debit MasterCard.



The ad is being offered to television stations nationwide for broadcast.

The Treasury continues to urge social security recipients to switch to direct deposit through its Go Direct program. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is a Go Direct national partner and supports the check-safety and cost-savings goals for the program.

All federal benefit recipients will be required to receive their Social Security and other federal benefit payments electronically through direct deposit beginning on March 31, 2013.
