Identity theft has become a national concern. To provide the best protection against identity theft, we urge you to switch to Direct Deposit for receipt of your monthly benefit.
With Direct Deposit, we automatically wire your funds directly to your bank account so that you have immediate use of them on the first day of each month. Direct Deposit is much quicker, safer and more reliable than forwarding a paper check through the mail. To switch to Direct Deposit, download the authorization form Direct Deposit Authorization from this site. If you would like CPF to mail you a form, please call us at 202-362-1000 (extension 309) or use the Contact Us page to submit your request for a form. Once you complete the authorization form, we can usually implement Direct Deposit within 60 days.
