“Kathleen, I am 66 retired on Social Security with a limited budget. I would like to relocate to a country where I could have my check direct deposited.”
–Carl L., United States
No problem. The Social Security Administration will direct deposit your Social Security payment in dozens of countries around the world. The list is here.
However, it’s not necessary to have your monthly Social Security payment deposited in the country where you’re living. You could continue to have it deposited in your U.S. bank account and then access your funds via an ATM anywhere in the world.
