Because of the time which has elapsed since payments were last made to beneficiaries
in Russia, SSA may receive a number of claims for benefits due deceased individuals.
The underpayments due deceased beneficiaries can be quite large since there is no
restriction on the accrual of benefits to citizens and nationals of the U.S. and because
there is no restriction on the accrual of benefits to an individual who meets an exception
to the alien nonpayment provisions.
