CCB reminds public government to stop mailing social security checks

LITTLE VALLEY – By March 31, nearly all federal benefits are going to be delivered electronically, either to a recipient’s local bank or to a debit card account in Texas. The Federal government is urging benefit recipients still receiving paper checks to set up direct deposit with their bank or to sign up for the debit card. The debit card accounts are hosted by Comerica Bank, based in Dallas. The service is mostly free, although there are fees for ancillary services when choosing the debit card option.

CCB (Cattaraugus County Bank) is urging customers that still receive paper checks to enroll in direct deposit at the local, independent bank for their Social Security benefits. At CCB direct deposit is FREE, and with direct deposit to a checking or savings account, any monthly or quarterly services charges are waived. Banking locally is easy and safe. The personal service CCB offers should make the decision easy for anyone wrestling with what to do.
