The National Consumer Law Center will be holding a webinar entitled, The End of Social Security Checks: The 2013 Transition to Electronic Payments, on Wednesday December 5, 2012 from 2:00 pm -3:30 pm.

In March 2013, most individuals who are currently receiving Social Security, disability and veterans' benefits, and other federal payments by paper check will be required to change to electronic payment. This webinar will address what will happen next year, what options seniors have, and how you can help them make the transition. We will also discuss new protections for bank accounts, the Direct Express prepaid card, and privately purchased prepaid cards.
