What happens if you return to the United States to visit?

Excerpted from "Social Security Handbook". See the up-to-date, official Social Security Handbook at ssa.gov.

2717. What happens if you return to the United States to visit?

If you visit the United States and stay for more than one full calendar month, we will no longer consider you to be residing outside the United States for any month after the first full calendar month you are in the United States. You will not be entitled to any SVB payments until you leave the United States and re-establish residence outside the United States.

A calendar month means all of the first day of a month through all of the last day of that month. For example, if you enter the United States on May 25 and stay throughout the entire month of June and leave the United States on July 5, you will not be entitled to SVB for the month of July.

National Social Security Advisor Certification Available

If you're looking for advice on Social Security benefits, it may be useful to find someone with the "National Social Security Advisor" certification.

Although the NSSA appears to be a privately issued certificate, it seems to convey some level of knowledge about Social Security benefits. Finding a financial advisor with NSSA certification may be something worth exploring.

Before Freezing Credit, Consider Opening Social Security Online Account

A report states that, in order to establish an online Social Security account at ssa.gov, the Social Security Administration must have access to your credit report to verify your identification.

Thus, before freezing your credit (to mitigate the risk of recent hacks), consider setting up an account at ssa.gov first.
