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.
