Social Security

If you reside in United Arab Emirates, and have questions regarding Social Security Administration (SSA) services, you must contact the SSA Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) located in the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Italy.

If you need assistance from FBU Rome, please visit their web page at: https://it.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/fbu/

For comprehensive information on SSA’s services abroad, please visit SSA’s web page Service Around the World.

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