Can I Get Benefits Abroad?
Posted in: Benefits on September 6th, 2011

benefits abroadIf you are a recipient of either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, you may wonder how this affects your ability to travel if you happen to wish to live abroad while receiving disability payments.  In the event that you choose to live outside of the country, can you still get the payments that you need to continue living a normal life?

Getting Out Of The Country

It can be a little bit difficult to get out of the country if you are on Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income payments (you may get questions as to how you can afford to travel), but if for whatever reason you choose to live abroad while receiving Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental security payments, in most countries you can indeed continue to receive the payments so long as you are still eligible for them.

The rub comes in that there are certain countries that the United States government is not allowed to send payments to.  If you are going to live in one of the following countries you are allowed to continue to receive payments so long as you are eligible for the program:

•Austria
•Belgium
•Canada
•Chile
•Czech Republic
•Finland
•France
•Germany
•Greece
•Ireland
•Israel
•Italy
•Japan
•Korea (South)
•Luxembourg
•Netherlands
•Norway
•Poland
•Portugal
•Spain
•Sweden
•Switzerland
•United Kingdom

In the event that your country of residence is not on this list, be sure to contact the Social Security Administration to see what the rules are where you live.
