Thanks StanWhen my wife was eligible to receive SS benefits, she used and still uses our address here in Argentina, without a problem. That was in 2017 and she did everything over the phone, talking with an agent.
My original posting was to find out about Creating an Account on the Online "My SSA application" . It doers NOT pertain to the steps requerid to Apply to Start receiveing SSA benefits..!!
The MySSA account application Requires a Valid verifiable US address .
