While the U.S. Embassy in Accra is able to distribute federal benefits checks to U.S. Citizens in Ghana, we are unable to cash the checks or advise citizens on where to do so. Please work directly with your bank in Ghana and/or the United States on how to deposit or cash the payment. You may also reach out to the Internal Revenue Service to inquire about changing the method of payment. If you believe you may have a benefits check currently held at the U.S. Embassy, please email ACSAccra@state.gov to confirm. Once confirmed, you may then make an appointment via our online scheduling system to retrieve it.
