Getting in shape financially is vital to a person’s overall well-being. For senior citizens, people with disabilities and others who receive federal benefits including Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) by check, switching to electronic payments is a simple, but important step toward improving their financial fitness. One of the options for electronic payments that Treasury suggests as an easier alternative to checks is Direct Express® Debit MasterCard® card. This Treasury-recommended prepaid debit card provides a safe, user-friendly alternative for Social Security and Supplemental Security Income recipients.
