I have dual U.S. / Netherlands citizenship (so I have an American Social Security number). I now live permanently in the Netherlands. I need to open a savings or checking account with a U.S. bank in order to receive pension benefits that will soon be arriving.

The plan is to have these benefits deposited directly into a U.S. bank account, and then have them transferred to my Dutch bank.

My question is: Can I open an account with a U.S. bank from here in the Netherlands? Has anyone had experience with this question? Does anyone know how difficult this would be as far as paperwork, etc.? Or do I need to travel to the U.S.?

Lastly, does anyone know if Social Security will direct deposit benefits into a foreign bank?
