Receive payment for veterans benefit checks through a direct deposit to a bank or electronic transfer account by signing up for direct deposit membership at GoDirect.gov. United States Department of Veterans Affairs check recipients can also register for direct deposit via the telephone, notes Treas.gov.
In the United States, federal law mandates that all forms of benefit payments should be conducted electronically. This mode of payment is said to be more convenient and safer and offer better security compared to issuing paper checks, explains Treas.gov.
To facilitate the switch from paper check payments to electronic fund transfer, the government initiated the Go Direct service that enables VA payees to conveniently sign-up for direct deposit from any device with Internet access. To register, follow the steps provided below.
