U.S Treasury Requires Benefits to Paid Electronically

By March 1, 2013 Recipients of Federal benefits, like Social Security, SSI and Veterans benefits, are required to receive them via electronic payment. The Erie FCU encourages members to visit a branch office to set up direct deposit to their account. Anyone who does not sign up by the deadline will receive their benefits on a Direct Express® Debit MasterCard®* from the US Department of Treasury.
