What happens to my IRA if I move abroad?

Nothing happens to your Roth IRA if you move abroad. The funds will still grow tax-free, and all the same required minimum distribution rules apply once you reach retirement age. The only thing that could change when you move abroad is your ability to contribute more money to a Roth IRA.

What happens to my retirement if I leave the country?

As far as the US is concerned, once you have moved to your home country, you will only pay US taxes on US-Situs assets if you are a non-resident. Thus, if distributions are small, you could fall into the lowest US bracket and essentially pay 0%.

Can I keep my retirement if I move to another country?

Unless there is a specific plan provision for it, your employer's 401(k) plan cannot expel you as long as you are a plan participant. In many cases, you can keep your 401(k) account with the plan provider even after you leave the company and the country.

What happens to my 401k if I retire in another country?

Under most circumstances, approved overseas withdrawals from a 401(k) or U.S. pensions are still taxed as income, albeit they're treated as unearned income—meaning you won't be able to claim them under the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion. However, there are many tax treaties between the U.S. and other countries.

What are the rules on IRAs for US citizens living abroad?

IRA contribution rules for overseas Americans

For 2019 and 2020, traditional and Roth IRA rules state Americans may contribute up to $6,000 per year or $7,000 for Americans over the age of 50. The IRA distribution rules for U.S. citizens living abroad are the same as they are for citizens living stateside.

What should I do with my US investment accounts when I move overseas?

Open accounts using your foreign address, transfer the funds, and close the existing accounts. (Some custodians are friendlier to expats, such as Interactive Brokers, Charles Schwab, and TD Ameritrade.) Your 401(k)s should not be affected as long as you are still a participant.

Can you get Social Security if you move to another country?

If you are a U.S. citizen, you may receive your Social Security payments outside the U.S. as long as you are eligible for them.

Can you collect Social Security and a pension from another country?

If you are a U.S. citizen and qualify for Social Security retirement, family, survivor or disability benefits, you can receive your payments while living in most other countries.

Can a U.S. citizen retire in another country?

Almost any country you would want to live in welcomes American retirees, as long as they can prove that they have a certain minimum income from some combination of Social Security, a pension, and investment income.

How long can you live outside the US and still collect Social Security?

SSI benefits will stop if a recipient is outside the United States for more than 30 days, and benefits won't start up again until the recipient is back in the country for at least 30 days. However, there are exceptions for dependent children of military personnel and students studying abroad.
