Electronic Benefit Transfer/Direct Deposit

This is just a stab in the dark... My honest opinion is that more context is needed. If this has to do with the automatic distrubition of company benefits, pay, etc to an employee's account, my first thought is "Direct Deposit."

However, there is also a government program called "EBT, Electronic Benefit Transfer." Here is a synopsis of the program from their website (linked below):

"Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) is an electronic system that allows a recipient to authorize transfer of their government benefits from a Federal account to a retailer account to pay for products received. EBT is currently being used in many States to issue food stamp and other benefits. Over 80 percent of food stamp benefits are currently being issued by EBT.

In EBT systems, food stamp recipients apply for their benefits in the usual way, by filling out a form at their local food stamp office. Once eligibility and level of benefits have been determined, an account is established in the participant's name, and food stamp benefits are deposited electronically in the account each month. A plastic card, similar to a bank card, is issued and a personal identification number (PIN) is assigned or chosen by the recipient to give access to the account. Recipients are offered the opportunity to change the PIN number at any time, and are offered ongoing training if they have any problems accessing the system."

Do either of these fit your context or am I way off? :-)

Anyway, hope this helps.
