Default Maybe moving to the Uk

Hi, been browsing through posts on here for a while now, so I get what is needed as far as the financial requirements etc. Just unclear about British wife who is a permanant resident recieving spousal SS (I'm a US citizen). When we make the move to the UK a d she gives up her PR will she lose it? Anyone been in this situation?

If she moves, then yes, she’ll lose her PR. If she’s met the requirements for citizenship, you might want to get her citizenship before you leave? It’s a personal decision of course, but would save you energy and money if you wanted to live in the US again in the future, or even visit for extended periods at some point.

I think the question the OP was asking is will his wife lose her spousal benefit ....

If the OP is asking whether his wife, who receives US Social Security, will lose these payments if she moves to UK, the answer is NO; she will have to arrange to have it deposited in the UK.

No, she won't "have to", there is no such compulsion. She could continue to have it paid into her bank account in the US, then either draw it when visiting the US, or transfer it herself using a service such as Transferwise. Granted it might easier to get the money deposited in the UK, but it isn't required.

I don't think there will be any chance of moving back permanently. To visit, yes of course.
