Payments Outside the United States

Your Social Security payments will stop after you have been outside the United States for 6 consecutive calendar months because you did not meet an exception to the alien nonpayment provisions of the Social Security law.

To find out whether any Social Security benefits payable to you will be subject to nonresident alien tax withholding for IRS, select the Nonresident Alien Tax Screening Tool.

To learn more about the law regarding payments outside the U.S. for Social Security beneficiaries, select Nonpayment of monthly benefits to aliens outside the United States .
