I’m a naturalized U.S. citizen living in Canada with Canadian citizenship. I naturalized in 2007 at the request of my husband, who was starting a business in the U.S., At that time he thought it would be better as a co-owner of the business, if I was a U.S. citizen. Three weeks after I naturalized my husband died in an accident. The business never happened. I moved back to Canada, my country of origin, one year later. With my husband gone, and no ties to the U.S. and also the stress and cost of filing a U.S. tax return each year, I am thinking of renouncing. The problem is that I receive survivor social security benefits, my primary source of income. Will I lose these benefits if I renounce my U.S. citizenship? Thank you.
