Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization Form
Current annuitants and survivors are required to have annuity checks directly deposited to a savings or checking account by electronic funds transfer (EFT). Direct deposit prevents late delivery, loss, or theft of your annuity check. In addition, if you are away from home, your money is deposited to your account. The direct deposit occurs on the first business day of each month.
As the Administrator of the Police Officers’, Firefighters’ and Teachers’ retirement plans, DCRB is required to take measures to ensure that we have accurate information and that you are receiving your annuity payments. To have your check deposited by EFT, you are required to complete the Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization Form and attach a personalized voided check or copy of a recent bank statement if the transfer will occur using your savings account. This form requires official notarization by a Notary Public. For immediate processing, you may electronically send this form and attachments to Fax: (202) 566 -5001 or email@example.com. However, you must mail the original documents to:
Member Services Center
DC Retirement Board
