Can you receive Social Security benefits if you move outside the US?
Yes, under most circumstances, US citizens and legal residents who qualify to receive benefits will continue being paid if they move out of the United States; however, there are some countries where US Government checks or deposits are prohibited or restricted. If you live in one of these countries, your benefits will stop until you relocate to an unrestricted country, at which time you will also receive any back payments missed. The SSA cannot send checks to a designated proxy.

You cannot receive payments at all while living in Cuba or North Korea.

You usually can't receive benefits if you live in any other communist country, but you may be able to get an exception through the US Embassy if you live in "Cambodia, Vietnam or areas that were in the former Soviet Union (other than Armenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia)."
