Debtors have the option to pay their title II and title XVI debts by MasterCard, VISA,
Discover, American Express or Diners Club credit cards. This option is available to
current pay debtors and non-pay debtors in both programs.
SSA does not have the capability to make debit transactions. Debtors should be advised
that if they wish to use a MasterCard or Visa debit check card, the transaction can
only be processed as a credit card payment.
NOTE: The Diners Club Card will only be accepted when it processes as a MasterCard or Discover
transaction. Acceptable Diners Club Cards should have the MasterCard or Discover Card
logo present on the card and meet the numerical requirements. (See chart GN 02210.205B.1.)
