U.S. Treasury Requires Electronic Federal Benefit Payments

The Treasury Department is running a “Go Direct” campaign that requires federal payment beneficiaries to switch from receiving checks to direct deposit or to a Direct Express® Debit MasterCard card.

Members that receive paper checks should soon be receiving communications from those benefit payers as to their electronic receipt options. By March 1, 2013, everyone, with some limited waiver exceptions, receiving the following federal benefits by paper check is required by law to switch to electronic payments:

 • Social security
 • Supplemental Security Income
 • Veterans Affairs
 • Railroad Retirement Board
 • Office of Personnel Management
 • Department of Labor (Black Lung)

Sign up for electronic payments via: 

 • Website: GoDirect.org
 • Call the U.S. Treasury Electronic Payment Solution Center at (800) 333-1795 Monday—Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.

To set up direct deposit with IU Credit Union, you will need:

 • Social Security number or claim number
 • 12-digit federal benefit check number
 • Amount of most recent federal benefit check
 • Our routing number:  274972744
 • Account number and type – checking or savings
