Social Security

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has consolidated its overseas operations into several regional offices that provide a full range of SSA services for U.S. citizens residing outside of the United States.  Effective October 1, 2017, please be advised that the Embassy in Port Louis can no longer accept telephone calls, emails, or walk-in consultations regarding Social Security issues.

If you reside in Mauritius, Reunion and Seychelles and have questions regarding services provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA), you must contact the Federal Benefits Unit in Athens, Greece.  For more information, please visit their webpage.  They can also be reached + 30 210-720-2426, or Fax +30-210-729-0509 or +30-210-646-9885.

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