Generally, the US Social Security system requires all people living abroad*, receiving Social Security benefits, to file a form SSA7162 every year, but those policies have been offficially suspended this past 2 years due to COVID issues with overseas mailing. It’s a simple form that certifies our current address, and certifies that the SS benefits recipient is still alive.

*Who is required to file?
All people receiving Social Security benefits, who have foreign addresses registered with the SSA. It does not matter if your check is deposited in the USA or to a foreign bank account, because it’s all about the mailing address you have on file with the SSA.

*2022 Updates:
The SSA typically mails the forms out in May each year, with a 60 day due date for returning the form after the day your receive it … Yet the program was suspended due to COVID mailing problems, and this year, the notices were not sent out until June 2022, A follow up notice is sent in October and December if the completed questionnaire has not been received.

SSA Official Due Dates for Filing in 2022:
Per the SSA: “The Social Security Administration will resume mailing the forms SSA-7161 and SSA-7162 in late June 2022.”

We personally got our 2022 SSA notices requiring us to file Form SSA-7162, delivered to our Mexican address on July 17, 2022 - filing within the 60 day limit after receipt.

I did not received any this year.  I know I made my change of address in May 2021. It was confirm.   In your idea should I just wait?  Thanks.

Contact the benefits section of the Consulate in Guad.  They can help you.   Message me if you like and I can send you the letter I received from them.

It's easy - without contacting the FBU at the US embassy.
