  1. Complete the Direct Deposit/Payment Form.
  2. ​Complete the IRS Form W-9.
  3. Attach a voided check for the account of your choice. 
  4. Return the completed information:

The process involves obtaining verification from our financial institution that an electronic transfer is accepted. Upon receipt of the acceptance confirmation from our bank we will send you notification via mail indicating that the process is complete and your next HAP payment will automatically be deposited electronically in your account. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at 617-988-4123 or by email.
