Social Security Check Benefits When Retiring Overseas

by Dan on September 2, 2011

If you are planning on retiring overseas you can still collect social security. Some people make the mistake with thinking that if they are going to be overseas that they won’t get social security but that’s wrong because you can get it. When you are living overseas you can get your social security check sent regardless of your location.

One thing that you should know though before you retire overseas is that medicare is often times not valid when you go overseas. Therefore, you might actually find that when you retire overseas you could see a raise on your check because of not having medicare on it. Don’t worry about the price of health care when you are overseas because in most places it’s usually cheaper and you’ll find that the medications are also cheap regardless of where you are going. This is a great way for you to save some extra money.

Retiring overseas might sound expensive to some but in the long run it could actually cause you to save a lot of money and even get more in return because of it thanks to the social security check. If you are worried about money then you should look into some senior citizens financial programs that they have available for seniors retiring overseas.
