Social security benefits

Greetings. Curious if anyone has information as to receiving ss benefits in the RD?

You receive it into your US bank account and use your bank card here or wire it to an account here if you have one.

I dont believe SS will deposit your money into an international account.

I believe Planner is correct. I have mine put into my US account and bring in money as I need either by check to my local account or wire transfer.

Thanks much. Sounds good to me!

They are correct. I use a local check cashing guy. He charges $3 off the top & gives you the full daily rate. You must be referred & present Your pass port. He is open 6 days a week. No muss, no fuss. The $3 fee is for any amount... If you are in the Sosua area, PM me for details.  So easy, fast & cheap.

Thank you. Much appreciated.
