Public service announcements have been running for weeks and now time is running out.
If you're one of the 130-million people who get a check from the government each year, you'll soon have to switch to a paperless option.
"I think a debit card might be much better for folks because it's a little more hands on and there's no confusion in the mail or is this the right check," says one man.
Many think switching to a debit card or getting direct deposit will help.
But others wonder if seniors who are more comfortable with cash and less with technology will be able to adjust to the changes.
"The only concern I would have is for people who don't have bank accounts so they should offer some sort of budgeting or finance classes and educate them on a way to open a bank account," says one woman.
"I think it'd be kinda complicated for them, but I also say the less complicated that we can make it for older folks is better," says another man.
It's what many banking institutions in the region are trying to do, including here at Wells Fargo.
Wells Fargo Manager Michael Scott explains, "We've had some customers who are right on it. They're coming in, they're having the conversation - 'Ok, what can I do to prevent having to use that pay card because some customers just don't feel comfortable with that, they just don't trust it."
Regardless of what customers decide to do, financial professionals say everyone should do what they can to protect their bottom-line.
"In year 2010, there were 540-thousand checks reported lost or stolen, identity theft, fraud is at an all time high, customers please make sure that you do everything in your power to protect yourself," Scott says.
There are some exemptions from this new law - if you were born on or before May 1, 1921, if you live in a remote area or if you have a mental impairment.
The government says this will save 1-billion dollars over the next decade.
