Social Security checks going paperless

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Starting next year, you'll no longer be able to receive your social security check and other government benefits in the mail.

The federal government is phasing out paper checks for all benefit programs.

This means you would be required to get payments electronically, either through direct deposit or a debit card.

The Treasury Department says electronic checks are safer and more efficient than paper checks.
