Will I Lose My Benefits If I'm Out of the Country?
Dear Senior Legal Line:
I am planning a trip to Germany in the fall. I have relatives there and I’ll be staying for about two months. While I’m there I’ll be taking a short side trip to Poland. I am a U.S. and Minnesota citizen. I am 72 and I get medical benefits and Social Security retirement. Do I need to worry about losing my benefits if I am out of the country for that long?
