The simple answer to this question is “Yes” you will receive your cheques for yourself and dependants. Suggest having them directly deposited into your bank account then you can draw them at an ATM at your convenience. If you go with a company that operates in the U.S. and the Philippines its easier to get the account setup as it can no doubt be done in the U.S. before you even reach the Philippines. One thing that is important to remember though is that Social Security cheques can only be deposited into a dollar account not Philippines peso but the banks offer both types of account. If your not sure if your entitled to SS payouts I would advise checking the website and contacting the office as you may be entitled but unaware you can.
