In his post, the man said he doesn't want to hear anything about direct
deposit because then he'd be at the mercy of the bank/guv/whatever. I have
had my SS check direct deposited since I retired in 1995. I have yet to
experience a late deposit. My roommate is on both SS and SSI. Her SSI
check arrives at her bank on the 1st or earlier. She, too, has never
experienced late deposits. Sometimes you just gotta trust someone, even if
it's government.

What I don't see is why the bank is charging you a fee for having
direct deposit when there is no paper work or really personel involved
as it is all done electronically. I don't know who regulates these
fee's I guess the banks in which in this town and state are rather
high to say the least

Banks don't charge fees for direct deposit.
Sometimes, banks charge fees for holding an account open, although I've never paid.
I find it hard to believe that you would have such trouble with a day-late check, in a small town, unless you have established a reputation as a deadbeat.
Why wouldn't you contact the VA, especially since it's supposedly a VA disability?
You're sure whining a lot for a veteran.
Is there some kind of rant in the offing?
