Prepaid Debit Cards 

 

As of April 1, 2008, people who receive Social Security and Supplemental Security Income have the option of receiving their benefits on a prepaid Direct Express debit card.  This card would be an option for those who do not have bank accounts or for those who have creditors who have access to their bank accounts.

 

This is a new program and therefore, the best way to learn about this option is to go to the following links:
