I’m a U.S. Citizen, But I Live Outside the U.S. Abroad or Plan to Move Outside the U.S. Will I Be Able to Collect SSD Benefits?

Usually, if you have been approved for SSDI benefits, you will be able to receive them if you are a U.S. citizen living outside of the country. However, there are a few exceptions:

  • Social Security will not send benefit payments to Cuba or North Korea. However, if you are living in one of those countries and then move to another country or back to the U.S., you will get all the payments that you missed.
  • There are some other countries, including countries that were formerly Soviet Union republics, where Social Security will not send payments. However, for these countries, there are some exceptions for people who are eligible where Social Security will send checks on a special payment plan.
