Can a sixty five year old illegal immigrant get social security benefits?
The only way anyone can receive social security benefits is if he/she has earned at least 40 credits (yearly maximum credits=4) or if they are a surviving spouse of someone who has done so. These credits must accrue to a legitimate social security number, not to a false number used by illegals to get a job. There has been a rumor for years that the Carter administration enacted a law to pay illegal's benefits at age 65. This is completely false. "Totalization", which combines social security credits earned in the US (legally) with those earned in one of 20 countries that the United States has an agreement with, is best described here: www.snopes/inboxer/pending/mexican.asp.

Yes. You can take early retirement at age 62 if you have accumulated the required 40 work credits, but your benefit amount will be reduced to approximately 75% of what you wou…ld receive if you postponed retirement until full retirement age. People born in 1958 reach full retirement age at 66 + 8 months (eight months after your 66th birthday in 2024).
If you have accumulated enough work credits (typically 40) the earliest you can collect Social Security retirement benefits is 62. At that age, your monthly payment would be a…bout 75% of the amount you would receive by waiting to retire at SSA's full retirement age. Full retirement age: Born before 1943...................65Born between 1943-1954........66Born in 1955.........................66 + 2 monthsBorn in 1956.........................66 + 4 monthsBorn in 1957.........................66 + 6 monthsBorn in 1958.........................66 + 8 monthsBorn in 1959.........................66 + 10 monthsBorn in 1960 or later...............67 You can receive Social Security disability benefits at any age if you have sufficient work credits (on your own or a spouse's work record, or on a parent's work record if disabled before age 22) and SSA determines your condition prevents you from engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA).

Widows are eligible to begin drawing retirement benefits at age 60 if they have not remarried before that time. Disabled widows are eligible at 50. A widow or ex-spouse may …draw survivors' benefits at any age if she is raising the decedent's dependent minor children who are under age 16. The children should also qualify for separate survivor benefits. Please call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 to speak with a representative about your specific situation.
Yes, under certain circumstances. A widow or widower who is disabled may collect survivors' benefits as early as age 50; however, the widow(er) must be at least 60 years old t…o collect survivors' retirement benefits. If the widow(er) has not yet reached full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954), the benefit will be reduced. A spouse or divorced spouse of any age may collect survivors' benefits if caring for the deceased person's minor children who are under age 16. Ex-spouses are also eligible for survivors' benefits, using the guidelines above, if the marriage lasted at least ten years.
As much as you want.
If you are sixty six years old and only have 14000 dollars in income from Social Security do I have to file taxes?
The answer changes with many factors...age, disability, married or not, etc, and what may be defined as income, may not be what you expect, so looking at this link will …help (for anyone): http://www.irs.gov/publications/p501/ar02.html#en_US_publink100041738 And now you fell into the trap of getting my words of wisdom! There are many reasons to file, even if you don't owe. The gov't provides many benefits to people based on the income (or lack) only if they file (last years incentive check is one of many examples). But, appreciate this - if the IRS (not known for being too concerned about anything or one than themselves) says you don't have to file...who do you think that normally benefits - you or them?
Unless you are blind or disabled, the earliest you can receive benefits is at age 62,
They pay taxes.
Answer Answer You need to obtain more information about how marriage to an illegal immigrant will affect you. There will probably be issues if the illegal i…mmigrant did not enter the country legally which will cause delays. If you are already married, then you need to follow the steps necessary to make the marriage one that is true in the eyes of the law, and you may find that you put the cart before the horse. Investigate whether it would be much easier to go get married in his country and bring him back as your husband and what visa you would need.
I think not, since these are supposed to be for US citizens.
You cannot refinance a mortgage if you don't already have a mortgage, so how did you get a mortgage if you are an illegal immigrant with no social security number? … You should attain legal status first.
NO, you have to have 2 forms of identification, and if you are illegal you are not getting one anyway. The Answer no is not truly correct. There is a couple of ways an indi…vidual could get a SS Card while being Illegal immigrant status. I personally know of a person who has one because he came to visit his father before his 18 birthday and his father had one issued to him so that he could be claimed as a dependent. Now he was supposed to return to Mexico Once he reached the age of 18 but he never did and has been working and filing Taxes with that number issued when he was a child. His father never completed his immigration so he is here illegal.

In Federal Laws
(in the US) student loans are guaranteed by the government for the sole purpose of the borrower completing their education and becoming a contributing (and taxpaying) member o…f the community. As a general rule you are free from being garnished by the lender because the government guaranteed the lender they would be paid. How the government might approach you for your repayment to THEM is another matter. I have actually spoke with social security and they state that social security SSI can only be touched if you owe child support. It is need based and not even the government can take that from the individual. Call the Social Security/Disability office for further info.
