Housing Assistance Payment Check Processing

Owners can choose to receive their monthly Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) amounts by mail or through direct deposit.

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is the easiest and fastest way to receive your monthly HAP. Once your enrollment is finalized, payments are sent directly to your bank on the first business day of each month. Your direct deposit statement is mailed out on the first business day of the month. Direct Deposit processing days for 2020 are listed in the schedule below.

How to Enroll In Direct Deposit

If you would like to sign up for direct deposit, please print, complete and submit the Direct Deposit Form.

You can return the direct deposit form via e-mail to Sec8accounting@scchousingauthority.org or call the Finance Department at (408) 975-4620.

Once you have signed up for direct deposit and your account information has been verified by the bank, you will see electronic transfer of HAP amounts into your account.  Direct deposit statements are mailed out on the first business day of the month.

Checks by Mail

For those owners opting to receive their checks in the mail, regular monthly Section 8 rent checks are mailed out on the first business day of the month.
