Form SSA-1372-BK-FC. Advanced Notice of Termination of Child's Benefits (Foreign Claims)
Form SSA-1372-BK-FC, the Advanced Notice of Termination of Child's Benefits (Foreign Claims), serves the same purpose as the domestic version, but it is tailored for individuals living outside the United States who are receiving child's benefits. The primary function remains to provide advanced notice of the termination of these benefits.
For example, a child residing abroad who is receiving Social Security benefits based on a parent's work record would use this form to receive advanced notice of the impending termination of those benefits. The purpose is to ensure that individuals living abroad have time to prepare for the cessation of these benefits.
The parties involved are the individuals receiving child's benefits outside the United States and the Social Security Administration. This form is structured similarly to Form SSA-1372-BK, with sections for beneficiary information, termination details, and an explanation of appeal rights. The key difference is that it is specifically designed for foreign claimants.
