Can an American citizen receive SSi in Canada

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My step-daughter has duel citizenship. She is disabled but has worked for several more than thirty years in the US. She is concerned with what is/will happen to ACA and wants to compare with medical plans in Canada

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

She is now bed-ridden with arthritis and losing her eye-sight.

Hi. My name's Lane

...

I hold a law degree (J.D.), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA in finance, a BBA, and CFP & CRPS (Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist) designations, as well - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, non-profit, and tax advice on three continents since 1986.

Bear with me a moment and I’ll provide my initial response, and then we can go from there if you have further questions on this.

Yes, if you’re a U.S. citizen, you may receive your Social Security payments outside the United States as long as you are eligible.

...

It's important to note that when you live outside the US, there is an additional requirement, once you've been awarded the benefit.

...

When you live outside the United States, periodically SSA will send you a questionnaire. Your answers will help us figure out if you still are eligible for benefits. Return the questionnaire to the office that sent it as soon as possible. If you don’t, your payments will stop.
