The person who takes the claim asks if the claimant wants direct deposit for the benefit
payments. The claimant or representative payee provides the routing transit number
(RTN) and the depositor account number (DAN).
The EFT information becomes part of the data that goes to RRB through the daily PRCORACE
file for certification of LAF-E benefits. RRB uses the data to send the payments to
the financial institution (FI). The FO does not send the information separately to
the RRB for a new claim. This is an automated process.
