Foreign Enforcement Questionnaire

Each year, beneficiaries outside of the U.S. are required to complete Form SSA-7161 or SSA-7162, Report to the United States Social Security Administration (also referred to as a Foreign Enforcement Questionnaire). The purpose of this form is to ensure that Social Security has the correct contact information for the beneficiary and that benefit eligibility continues.

The form is mailed from the U.S. in May and a follow-up letter is mailed in September. It is important that you complete the form as soon as possible and send it back by regular postal mail using the enclosed return envelope.
