I do not want to take any monies from the USA , if I am not intitled to. I do receive a stipin of $401.00 per month from S.S.Administration, I was told being a military wife I was intiled to this, & the fact that I am 66 years of age. However given my present Canidian Father's illness I must remain here. I have never worked in the USA. Been married to my USA husband since 2007. Please avice I do not want to do any thing wrong, nor take any monies I am not intiled to. "Thanking you indavance for your help"...

If you are a citizen of one of the countries listed below, we will continue your U.S. Social Security payments as long as you are eligible, no matter how long you stay outside the United States:

• Austria • Belgium • Canada • Chile • Czech Republic • Finland • France • Germany • Greece • Ireland • Israel • Italy • Japan • Korea (South) • Luxembourg • Netherlands • Norway • Poland • Portugal • Spain • Sweden • Switzerland • United Kingdom

So as you can see, as long as you are entitled to the payments, because of the treaty we have with Canada, you are still entitled to those payments - and they will send them to you there as well
