    So, it means that you were able to receive a SS check in Arg, from US and then cash it in BA?...Why were we talking (in a different post) about transfering retirement money from a US bank to BA, if that is possible? I'm confused now... If that is correct, what is the best way to change the check...

    Receiving mail from outside Argentina

    It is not getting through. A NY friend (from BA) sent mail to her family in BA. After days, she got the mail with a sticker saying "Mail Service Suspended".

    Moving back to BA from US and getting my retirement

    I am by myself in USA. No family. Also, I have sent a credit card to a friend in BA, many (many!) years ago and it got lost. I dont trust them. But, thank you, anyway.

    Moving back to BA from US and getting my retirement

    I am a fan of minimalism. I dont possess unnecesary stuff. It is only that I would like to take with me a few things. Eventually I will give away furniture, but there are two pieces restored by myself that I would like to take with me.

    Thank you. I tried to sell a "desk" for more than three months. Nobody wanted it. No surprised why people put everything on the sidewalk and leave...

    What if we have another surprise like in 2001, with a new "corralito" and the banks/government freeze our money even the minimum, (I am not talking about a big sum of money), just my SS retirement....??

    Moving back to BA from US and getting my retirement

    1. I can buy a transformer in BA, for my devices (not too many, though). But I can't carry a juicer, drill, fan, kitchen mixer, in my luggage...(all of them 110v). 2. I am aware about cars. 3. Yes, but the problem is withdrawing from THERE (BA). 4. Thank you!!

    Moving back to BA from US and getting my retirement

    I'm planning to move back to BA before the end of the year (if possible...). Born in BA but also American citizen. I would need a good advice about international moving companies to get my stuff safely in BA (not too many things, just books and some furniture). Also: any idea about collecting...
