Can you collect your Social Security benefit from the US and deposit it in a Mexican Bank Account?

Just recently, I had a viewer comment on one of my videos warning people not to let the United States Social Security Administration know that you were living in Mexico or else you would lose your benefit.

The reason I am doing this video is that in the past I have seen many similar comments circulate amongst the Expat Community here in Mexico.

Hopefully, this video will clear up the confusion of collecting Social Security in Mexico and how to apply for social security if you are living in Mexico.
