Direct Deposit Requirements for TAFDC and EAEDC Grantees
Remember that the Department requires participation in Direct Deposit for any TAFDC or EAEDC grantee
who has an active bank account. Also, any TAFDC or EAEDC grantee who establishes a bank account is
required to cooperate with the Direct Deposit process.
TAFDC or EAEDC grantees with bank accounts are not required to be on Direct Deposit when they:
- do not have public transportation within one mile of their residence or within one mile of the financial institution;
- are disabled and can verify lack of access to handicapped-accessible transportation services; or
- are victims of domestic violence and the co-owner of the account is the abuser.
See 106 CMR 706.410 for more information.
