The government’s practice of mailing monthly benefit checks will end in March 2013. The checks will be received electronically through a direct bank deposit or a debit card for those people without a bank account. The change will affect millions of people and will mean another loss of business for the Postal Service.

The benefits include Social Security, veterans’ benefits, railroad pensions and federal disability payments. Tax refunds are exempt and for those people who want their refunds by check, they will get them by mail.
