  • Resolve post-entitlement issues (e.g., change of address, report of death, Medicare enrollment, direct deposit enrollment, non-receipt of benefits, etc.)

To expedite your visit, please bring both the originals and photocopies of documents that you need to submit to SSA. The SSA representative will keep the photocopies and return the original documents to you.

Only representatives from the Social Security Administration will be present at this remote services event. Embassy staff will be unable to answer questions regarding American Citizen Services (ACS), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
