I get my ssi payments through the direct express debit mastercard. The old card expires in may of thos year. They just sent me a new debit mastecard. Once i activate the card so i have to call social security and tell them to deposite my ssi payments on the new debit mastercard?
Most Imperfect Man: "DO I NEED TO GIVE THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION MY CARD INFORMATION IN ORDER TO RECEIVE MY BENEFITS?
— No. After you sign up for the card, Comerica Bank, the Direct Express® card issuing bank, will notify the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you have a Direct Express® debit card account and will give SSA the information it needs to send your benefit payments to your account."
Not sure. But I think they should get it sorted automatically so you don't remain without food.
Activating the new card should automatically update their system. But there is a telephone number on the back of the card that you can call to verify.
