Alien beneficiaries who would otherwise be subject to suspension under the alien nonpayment
provisions of section 202(t)(1) of the Social Security Act are exempt from suspension
if they reside in Germany (see GN 01701.150A.1).
This exemption applies to people who receive regular RSDI benefits as well as totalization
benefits, provided they are:
refugees or stateless persons, or
auxiliary or survivor beneficiaries entitled on the SSN of a worker who is (or was
at the time of death) a U.S. citizen, German citizen, or refugee or stateless person.
Note: German citizens are already exempt from the alien nonpayment provisions, regardless
of where they reside (see RS 02610.015A).
