Once enrolled, the recipient will begin receiving direct deposit payments in their foreign account in the specified currency on the designated payment date.
If you are receiving Federal benefit payments and wish to receive these payments by international direct deposit, please contact your paying federal agency (i.e. Social Security Administration, Office of Personnel Management) to obtain an international direct deposit sign up form.
Getting started for vendor, foreign payroll, or miscellaneous payment recipients
