The Social Security Administration recently informed us that there are still approximately 400 Social Security recipients residing in Panama who have not returned their Report to the U.S. Social Security Administration form, which serves as their “Proof of Life”. Please note that the Social Security Administration suspended those benefits for the payment dated March 3, 2016.


In May/June of each year these forms are sent to the mailing address recipients have on record with the SSA. A second request is mailed in October.  


If you meet any of the conditions below, you were required to comply with this requirement in 2015:


v Beneficiary with a representative payee or

v Beneficiary aged 90 and over or

v The terminal digits of your SSN ends in 50 – 99


 If you have not yet returned your proof of life form to the Federal Benefits Unit, or if you wish to obtain a blank form, please send an e-mail to Panama-FBU@state.gov.   We will forward the form and instructions to you to have your benefits reinstated.
