    Did you know that you're still eligible to receive Social Security and Medicare benefits as an American living in the UK? Many people are unaware they're eligible to receive payments, and this year is no exception.

    Topics discussed will include:

        • Social Security Number policy
        • Medicare
        • other federal benefits

    DA Taxation Task Force Volunteer Info Session (APAC/EMEA Friendly Time)


    Are you passionate about American abroad tax issues and have the skills or time to help?
    The DA Taxation Task Force is hosting this volunteer information session to explain what's involved in being a volunteer and to answer any questions you might have about volunteering. Click here for an outline of volunteering opportunities for the TTF.

    The DA TTF is a group of dedicated volunteers working towards fixing the tax code for Americans living abroad. We are under new leadership for 2022 and in preparation, we are currently looking to restructure the team as well as inviting new volunteers to join us.

    We have a number of volunteer positions available, from people with no experience who want to help out with social media, to subject matter experts that can help us lobby Congress - everyone and anyone is welcome to contribute!

    Once you attend the info session, we encourage you to complete this application to the best of your ability. You will then be invited to a follow-up one-to-one 30 minute Zoom call to figure out which teams you fit into and to get you started.

    Note: Attending an info session is optional, you do not need to attend to express interest in volunteering. Feel free to go ahead and fill in the application form here.

    You can also express interest in volunteering by emailing [email protected] and including as much information as possible about your background and how you think you can help.

    Please feel free to forward this event page to friends or family that you think might be interested in getting involved!
