Benefits withheld while a U.S. citizen or national is in a Treasury-barred country
may be paid (subject to the restrictions in RS 02650.005A.2.) if the SVB beneficiary relocates to a country that is not Treasury-barred or SSA-restricted.
Proof of U.S. citizenship or national status is required before withheld benefits
can be paid to the SVB beneficiary.
The beneficiary must appear in person and submit proof of identity and establish that
all other SVB qualification requirements were met during the period he or she was
in the Treasury-barred country (e.g., was other benefit income paid to the individual
during his or her stay in the Treasury-barred country?)
