A big change is coming for Arizonans who still receive paper checks for their Social Security benefits. Senior advocate Maribeth Farringer says as of March 1st, all federal payments will be made electronically.
In Arizona about 90,000 persons were still receiving their monthly Social Security and SSI payments via a paper check as of last month. Those who still receive paper checks can go online at godirect.org to set up their electronic payments. Again that phone number is 1-800-333-1795.
