TRAVELING restrictions?

Are there any restrictions regarding travel and receiving benefits? I am not referring to access to ones benefits while overseas, but traveling with no fear of having said benefits taken away?

I receive Medicare (Disability, but not SSI) and Medicaid (California; just health insurance, no supplemental income from them) and want to know how long I am able to travel overseas without fearing of losing my benefits. Again - not trying to access them should I become ill overseas.

Four Common Social Security Claiming Mistakes

1. Not knowing your full retirement age (FRA). 'Full benefit' retirement age is rising beyond age 65 to age 67.

2. Not knowing you can file for benefits three months in advance of receiving income

3. Forgetting Social Security benefits can be subject to income tax.

4. Thinking early filers can later receive 'full benefits'. If filing early, your benefits are permanently reduced.

Common Mistakes About Social Security

A recent poll found about half of respondents made mistakes on the following :

1. Retirement benefits will not be reduced if I claim at age 65 => FALSE. Full retirement age is rising.

2. A spouse can receive Social Security even if they have no earnings history => TRUE

3. If my spouse dies, that will have no effect on my Social Security payment => FALSE

4. Social Security benefits depend only on my earnings history, not when I claim => FALSE
