If you reside in Bermuda and have questions regarding services provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA), you must contact the SSA Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) located in San Jose, Costa Rica. For more information on their services and how to contact them, please visit their webpage at: https://cr.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/social-security/

However, on 25th July 2018, a representative from the Social Security Administration will be visiting Bermuda to provide assistance on questions or concerns about monthly benefits or any other matters involving federal benefits.  To arrange an appointment, please email hamiltonconsulate@state.gov or you may telephone 705-0424 between 8:30am and 12:30pm weekdays.

If you are already receiving SSA benefits payments, there will be no change in the method of distribution of those payments.
