What would you like to do?
Can a nonresident collect social security retirement benefits?
yes. as long as you contribute into the plan, anyone regardless of his/her immigration status is entitled to receive the benefit for which has contributed.
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
Yes you can. Until recently, Colorado was one of four states that counted SS against a UI claim. That has changed and SS payments DO NOT count. Additionally, SS DOES NOT count… UI payments as income.
Does your employer still withhold Social Security if you are retired and collecting Social Security?
Yes. If you work after retirement, you will still have contributions to Social Security and Medicare (FICA) withheld from your paycheck at the same rate as before retirement.
Yes. As long as you qualify for each, they are unrelated programs that do not affect each other.
Yes, you can receive Social Security Disability (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Social Security retirement benefits and unemployment compensation if you can mee…t the eligibility requirements of both programs. A few states, such as Illinois, Louisiana, South Dakota (until fund increases), Virginia (until fund increases), and Utah apply an offset of 50% for people receiving both social security benefits and unemployment compensation. This means your weekly unemployment check is reduced by 50% of the weekly value of your Social Security Disability (SSDI) check. [Minnesota applies a 50% offset only for people who began receiving disability benefits after their work separation.] Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is not counted as income for offset purposes. While federal laws and the Social Security Administration don't prohibit people on disability from receiving unemployment checks, state unemployment regulations require all unemployment recipients to be actively seeking, willing and able to accept suitable work (comparable to previous employment or something appropriate to your skill set). This may creates a conflict if the unemployment entity in your state requires you to find full-time work, because you're generally not eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you're capable of full-time work. When you file for unemployment compensation, all states require you to provide your Social Security number (authorized under Internal Revenue Code of 1954, 26 U.S.C. 85, Sections 6011(a), 6050(b), 6109(a), P.L. 98-369, Section 1137(a)(1)). They will share information about your claim with other government agencies to determine how unemployment affects other benefits you may receive, such as Medicaid and food stamps. Under most state unemployment statutes, you must be ready, willing and able to accept employment, be actively seeking work, and must accept any reasonable employment offer for which you are qualified (unless there are legitimate, extenuating circumstances for refusing the offer), or your unemployment compensation can (and probably will) be terminated. If you are physically incapable of doing qualifying work under your state unemployment agreement, the state may consider you ineligible for benefits, or may consider your claim fraudulent if they later discover you're too disabled to fulfill your contractual agreement. Under these circumstances, you will be terminated from unemployment and may be required to repay any compensation you received.
Yes. If you qualify for unemployment benefits in your state, you can also collect Social Security benefits as they are 2 separate and distinct programs that do not interfere w…ith each other.
Can you receive Social Security benefits when you retire if you already receive veteran disability benefits?
Yes, if you have the right number of quarters in and are at least 65 or blind or disables.
Yes, if you qualify under each program. Both Social Security and the State of California allow workers to collect unemployment compensation and Social Security benefits at the… same time without applying an offset or penalty to either check. Bear in mind that you have to be actively looking for, and willing to accept, a full-time job, per your unemployment agreement. You can collect retirement benefits as early as age 62, but you can't actually retire while you're also accepting unemployment compensation.
Born between 1943 and 1954 Full Retirement age (FRA) or Normal Retirement age (NRA) will be age 66. Go to the SSA.gov web site Social Security Benefits ONLINE
Yes, if you own a private Disability insurance policy, the guidelines and benefits are accounted for separately from Social Security benefits. A person can be eligible to rece…ive both benefits. A private Disability policy can have two types of benefits: Base and Social Insurance benefit. Base benefits are payable regardless of Social Security benefits. Social Insurance benefits will offset dollar-for-dollar with any Social Security benefits you are eligible for. You can revert to your original Disability insurance policy, or policy summary to determine whether you have base or Social insurance benefits. You can also contact the insurance company your policy was written through to confirm this information.
Yes, as long as you qualify for both.
Do you have to contribute to Social Security if you collect Social Security benefits and work full time?
Yes as long as you are still living and have any type of earned income you are required to contribute your social security and medicare taxes on the income that you work for.
No. You can only collect on one person, whether it's yourself, or present/former spouse(s)
This is a personal decision and would depend on your financial situation and other factors that you may want to consider. To get the larger monthly benefits and if you are c…apable of working and earning income that is subject to the social security and medicare taxes you could put it off until age 70 to get the maximum monthly benefits that would be available. You can find a lot of useful information about your situation by going to the SSA.gov website SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS ONLINE and use the search box
Yes. It has been found, however, that for some reason some states (Virginia, for example ) reduce the amount of your unemployment compensation by the amount of your SS, which …they should not because they are 2 separate and distinct programs that have no bearing on the purpose of each other. You should check with your own state for its handling of the matter.
taxes on employers and employees.
I believe this answer is slightly incorrect -- "Yes, you can. Under "Non monetary Issues" > "Disqualifications" item (f) on page 5 of the Related Link below, Social Security b…enefits are excluded from the disqualifying chargeable benefits you receive." As I understand it, people who live in Louisiana and Illinois and receive social security payments and are eligible for unemployment benefits will have money deducted from their unemployment checks. In illinois, half a person's weekly social security payment is deducted from that person's weekly unemployment check. Illinois AARP has made repealing the social security offset law a priority.
