Paul Quinn Federal Credit Union backs Direct Deposit of Social Security payments with Go Direct


Paul Quinn FCU 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 benefit payments by check to switch to direct deposit.


Go Direct reaches out to people about direct deposit in many different ways, including media, advertising and Web sites in English and Spanish. But the most powerful avenue for getting out the message is face-to-face communication – and that’s where


Paul Quinn FCU comes in.


Paul Quinn Federal Credit Union is a familiar, trusted source of information for the members, i.e. senior citizens, people with disabilities, etc. We serve, and can help them make this small, but important change in their financial well-being. Paul Quinn FCU encourages you and our affiliates to participate in this worthy effort by calling the number at the bottom of this article.


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 the money saved remains in the Social Security Trust Fund – a benefit to all Americans for years to come.
