Consular Update: Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) Operations

To ensure the safety of the public and U.S. Embassy employees, the Federal Benefits Unit is limiting face-to-face service to emergency appointments only until further notice. For urgent concerns and inquiries, please write to FBU.Manila@ssa.gov  and indicate the nature of your emergency.

Once we approve your request for in-person service, we will schedule you an appointment.  Please avoid sending multiple emails, as this will cause further delays.
