Social Security Direct Deposit Authorization Form 1199A
The Social Security direct deposit form is a document used to initiate immediate electronic payments to beneficiaries of Social Security. This is a standard form used for all workers of all government agencies wishing to receive payments directly into a checking or savings account. The information submitted by the payee (in sections 1 and 2) must be 100% accurate before sending it to the financial institution where they are an account holder. The institution will then complete section three (3) and return the completed form to the Government Agency indicated therein.
