Default Foreign Enforcement Questionnaire

Thought I would post this response from the US Embassy, regarding my inquiry of the Form SSA-7161.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the annual mailing of reporting forms SSA-7162 and SSA-7161 has been delayed. The forms will be mailed out later this year so, at this time, no further action is needed. To stay updated about what SSA is doing during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may visit SSA’s COVID-19 Updates page.

I think this only concerns those on Disability ...

Thanks for the reminder! Good information.

7161 goes out to all SS recipients living overseas. 7162 goes out to all SS recipients with custodial accounts, like my kids.

Don... thanks for this information or break down I feel it's real important especially to me because in 4 years I'll be applying for SS... so let me get this correct if you could help me:

-The Social Security department will send a 7161 form every year as a verification of life?

-And If so what address would you have on file with the Social Security Administration?

I also am retired military and drawing a pension so my address on file with MyPay or military pay is still in the US.

I would leave it with the U.S. I never received the form last year, when SS had my Philippines address. The Manila Embassy knows there are problems, and has a system set up to cover you if it goes missing.

Regardless, it is a hassle. I changed my SS address to a U.S. mailbox so don't think I will get the 7161 anymore. I need to double check on that to make sure. There is something in the rules about it.

However, my 2 kids get SS too, with their mother as custodian, and their 7162 has to be mailed to the Philippines. They also did not get them last year. I hope they get them this year.

\\y MyPay address is here in the Phils, you can change it online. There is no proof of life requirement for mil ret pay. For SS I use the stateside address so I don;t have to mess with the 7161.

Sorry, my response was not very clear but I think you get the message. Leave your SS address in the U.S. and deposit it to a U.S. bank. A lot less headaches.
