How do I set up direct deposit for my Social Security check?

Direct deposit is the easy, worry-free way to have electronic deposits sent directly into your U.S. Bank checking or savings account. It's secure, convenient, and reliable. 
There are three ways to get the process started:

  • Go to to sign up online.
