Signing Up for Social Security?

Those applying for social security beginning Monday, May 2, will have to select an electronic payment option – either direct deposit or a debit card. The debit card can be reloaded every month. One has to be careful, though, as fees will apply. For example, there is a $1.50 charge for transferring from the card to a checking or savings account.

If you are already receiving social security, then you have two more years – until March, 2013 - to make this decision.
