A reminder: The Social Security Administration will stop issuing paper checks for retirement benefits starting Friday.
Retirees can choose to have their payments either directly deposited or loaded onto a prepaid debit card.
Treasury Department officials encourage people to sign up for direct deposit.
The debit card is primarily for those who don't have a bank account.
