Like others, we clear Customs & Immigration with our passports leaving a record.

I don't have any concerns with this. I can state with confidence that I will not be reporting my death!
So you have not lost your citizenship yet?

Re: Do You Report Your Movements to Social Security

why should anyone out of country while receiving social security income of any kind be in danger of loss of citizenship?? since when did usa become so stringent and dictatorial that it is mandatory to report movements to big brother??
so far, we have not gotten that far.
gods know how much longer this will last.

Actually for any foreign nationals in your country on a cruising permit you're already there. Maybe you average citizens are not far behind.

I do wonder how SSA will know when I have "Passed on" ....I suspect a certificate of death would generate a flag in the system.
If your crew or wife throw you overboard and the sharks eat you, then no one will know....unless it is reported to local authorities and then they will ultimately get that info to a US gov. agency.. Had a friend die in Thailand. Hospital reports to police....police finds passport....reports to consulate...then gets reported to USA gov. agencies....and SS ....and then they stop SS checks...and freeze bank account ( if payments are going into one) ...and get back their money that was paid after death.

My situation... all I get from the 'Strayan Guvment is cheap pills and somewhat less than $1000 a year cos the Ranga stuffed up with her carbon tax thingo a few years back.

Until the not too distant past if I was out of Australia for more than 45 days I would get an email saying I had to front 'Centrelink'... the local social security mob ... when I arrived back and do a bit of grovelling .

Having figured how many hours were being lost dealing with the likes of me it is now 90 days... but then the rules upon re-entry have all changed esp the treatment of assets .... after 12 months away your family home is no longer your residence but an asset etc etc.

I blame it on the Lebs and the 2006 war....

Well then it IS the money.

A man can tell a wife, look we can stay in this dirt rathole in timbuktu, OR, you see that 790ft thing over there in the water, the one with three coffee-can looking things coming out of the top? I can buy that right now and its all yours, together with 40 stewards of your own who will take you anywhere you want to go. Choose.

Of course its the money. Its always the money.

Right! We are idiots, no reason at all to be paranoid about anything. We're just spoilt, too much high living on McD and KFC. Went to our brains.

I dont speak for the group but as far as im concerned say anything you want. Im more interested in solving a problem than being politically correct. Who has the time left?
