Israel and the US do not have a Social Security Agreement.

Which could be  a problem. This means if a person who still is an American citizen works as an independent contractor in Israel they have to pay to both countries Social Security. That is unfair and not right. There should be an agreement as there is with many countries and if you pay to the  country you are now living in you don't have to pay to the US.

I do think this is unfair and I would hope there would be a Social Security agreement since you don't want to lose the benefits either in which you paid taxes to the USA for so many years taken out of your paycheck to go to Social Security.

I wonder what is done in sitations like this but it does make things harder for no real reason.
