Direct Deposit for Social Security


The process for setting up direct deposit for Social Security will depend upon whether you are enrolling for the first time or simply switching your deposit account information.



First Time Social Security Enrollment

You may apply for benefits for yourself or a spouse on the U.S. government's official Social Security website, if you:

  • are at least 61 years and 9 months old;
  • are NOT currently receiving benefits on your own Social Security record;
  • have not already applied for retirement benefits; and
  • want your benefits to start no more than 4 months in the future.


The website offers a list of information you will need to have handy in order to complete the application process. You will also find a retirement calculator that helps to estimate what your benefits will be.

You may also apply by phone at (800) 772-1213 from 7am - 7pm Monday through Friday or in person at your local Social Security office (call first to make an appointment.)

If you are already receiving social security benefits and would like to change your direct deposit account(s), you may do so online or over the phone.
