The Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) is the primary disburser of payments to individuals and businesses on behalf of federal agencies — for example, benefit payments paid by the Social Security Administration or the Department of Veterans Affairs, federal income tax refund payments, and payments to businesses for goods and services provided to the federal government.
The majority of the payments are disbursed through electronic funds transfers; the remaining are check payments. Annually, Fiscal Service disburses more than a billion payments, with an associated dollar value of more than $2.4 trillion.
In this section of our website, you'll find detailed information on the various Fiscal Service programs that are involved in making the payments.
