EFT for Welfare rent

Postby pblack » Thu Mar 30, 2017 4:27 am

Every now and then we come across a welfare recipient who's landlord only takes rent by Electronic Funds Transfer (no checks). Ten years ago this was almost unheard of, but today it seems to be the norm instead of the exception.

Is there any support for handling expenses in this fashion?

Assuming EFT is not an option, are there other options or approaches people take for EFT rent?

In the past we have done a clunky western union, or reimburse a member for a bank transfer.

You might want to talk to Local Unit Support to see if they have any options we've not heard of yet.
