Yes, Social Security will continue to pay benefits. Social Security has a website dedicated to keeping you informed about their services during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Please visit COVID-19 webpage for the latest information.

Will I continue to receive my SSDI benefit or SSI payment if I use Direct Deposit?

Yes. You will continue to receive your monthly benefit amount if you use Direct Deposit.

How do I sign up for Direct Deposit?

A law went into effect March 1, 2013, requiring that you receive your payments electronically. If you did not sign up for electronic payments when you applied for benefits, Social Security strongly urges you to do it now. If you still receive checks, the U.S. Department of the Treasury will contact you about complying with the requirement. For more information regarding switching to an electronic payment, visit Treasury's Go Direct website or call their toll-free telephone number at 1-800-333-1795.
