In fact, they told her to obtain a document from my doctor stating that if I become incapacitated my wife would be my power of attorney to bring said document in so it can properly be set up according to Philippine law and US law. There has not been a problem as I am with my wife when we go to the bank each month. There should never be a problem with any of our pensions as they are no government 'handouts' but 'entitlements' because we are entitled to our pensions because we've earned them.

In fact, my pension is listed in my wife's name for me, i.e., Nila Cope For James W. Cope.
Thanks for the reply Jim. We have a friend that lives close to us that may need to have his wife listed or added on as a payee here for his social security. He has an old injury that soon may make it difficult or impossible for him to get to the bank each month to move the money to a different account or even take it out of the bank.
I'll have him call his SS worker at the embassy and get the lowdown...

When I opened my Dollar account at the local PBI, we were told that if needed that I was hospitalized or something, she could withdraw as long as she had the bankbook and a Doctor's letter explaining the circumstances. This may go along with the differences between banks/branches. Haven't the need to try it yet.

Thanks Fred.. That might work short term for him and hopefully he can get the information. He's using Chinabank in the old downtown Angeles and would be interesting to know if they would do that.
Seems that there should be a permanent payee arrangement that can be made as eventually many US citizens living here would need that. I'm sure there must be a provision as the US govt would make sure retirees can always access their retirement dollars.

These restrictions are put in place to stop the family accessing the retirement dollars after the US citizen has passed on. Yes it can be inconvenient but there were cases on the death not being registered and the money kept flowing.

Yea, that I know and understand. At the same time--for example, I get in an accident or become hospitalized or home bound and can no longer go to the bank to transfer or withdrawal funds from the dollar acct. The US government must have a way for my wife to become my *representative payee* for the rest of my life. The US government as idiotic as they can be at times (the current president notwithstanding) would have a way for me to be able to access my retirement dollars no matter what..
