You can still receive Social Security benefits if you are an American citizen even if you visiting or even living outside the country as long as you are eligible for them.
Here’s How To Collect Your Social Security Benefits While Living Outside The U.S.
If you have Social Security benefits, you can visit or live in most foreign countries and still obtain payments as long as you are living in the listed country posted by the SSA.
Moreover, there is also a Payment Abroad Screening Tool to help you find out if you can continue to receive your Title II Social Security payments if you are outside the United States or are planning to visit outside the United States.
The Payments Abroad Screening tool will help you identify if your retirement, disability, or survivor’s payments will continue indefinitely, stop after six consecutive calendar months, or if particular country-specific restrictions apply.
For more questions about your benefits and if you are in the United States, just contact or visit your local Social Security office. If you are outside the United States, just got the website ad look for the list of Contacts for Services outside the U.S.
Use Work Credit To Still Qualify For Social Security Benefit
If you are employed outside the US, you may not have sufficient Social Security credits to qualify for Social Security retirement or disability benefits. But you may be able to count your work credits from another country.
