GO Direct the safest, easiest way to get Social Security or SSI payments
Safer – Protect your money from loss or theft
Easier – Your money goes straight into your account
More Control – Your money is on time, every time
CBT Bank is pleased to announce our partnership with Go Direct, a national campaign sponsored by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve Banks, to encourage people who get Social Security and other federal payments by check to switch to direct deposit.
Direct deposit is simply the best way to receive Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments. Direct deposit eliminates the risk of lost or stolen checks, reduces fraud, helps protect against identity theft and gives people more control over their money. Plus, direct deposit provides people with immediate access to their money from virtually everywhere.
Direct deposit also saves taxpayers millions of dollars. If every current federal benefit check recipient switched to direct deposit, it would save taxpayers about $130 million a year. Almost all of the money saved remains in the Social Security Trust Fund – a benefit to all Americans for years to come.
