Yes, I've tried the email in the past with zero response. I'll try calling this round. Thank you.

M.C.A.:
You'll be able to get help in starting your Social Security from any country that has a US Embassy and the US Citizen Services branch link as Chuck gave you above for the Philippines and here's the link for Vietnam https://vn.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/  and also you can find out what your Social Security check will be another link https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

Thanks to everyone (MCA, etc.),

I'll definitely shoot for a conversation on the phone. I'm getting a bit ahead of the curve on retiring :-) but I'm trying to avoid weird residency issues given my overseas time. I also don't want to get "snagged" on a state issue with income earned overseas and so on....just trying to keep it simple if possible.

Next return, I may even end up hitting South Dakota for a couple of days to wrap up a bunch of things - residency, transfer a license, voter registration while avoiding taxes.....

Hum, someone told me they applied online.  Guess I need to get busy researching this better. Thanks
