I want to direct deposit my Workers'Compensation checks, but I called today and was told I cannot. In the past I was told this could be done. Why not now?

Good Morning Ms. Kauffmann,

I reached out to the Worker's Compensation Board this morning, on your behalf. I was told that you would need to contact your individual insurance provider. Insurance providers are not required to do direct deposit on Worker's compensation checks. In case you need to verify this information, I have included the contact information for the NYS Workers' Compensation Board
