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.

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.
Answer You must get married to GET a SS card. Get married and then apply for Permanent Residency. Answer The social security system (number) …was created for a retirement & disabilty system for the U.S. labor force. You do not have to have a social security number to visit, travel or any other activity that has nothing to do with employment. This includes a marriage certificate. Some banks are even willing to open an account without a social security number. A person does need a vaild social security number or tax payer ID number to be legally employed in the U.S. The employer is required to document this number on Form I-9 but is not required to verify if the number is valid.
If you retire at sixty-two after working forty five years how long does it take to use up your contribution to social security?
Answer If your asking when does your benefit run out - NEVER. Live to 150 or more, you'll still receive monthly benefits...probably more than now because …of Cost of Living increases and such. If your asking how much you paid in compared to how much your getting back...especially as contributions were very low many years ago, even today it depends on your salary, etc. your best able to get that from SS on your history record. (You should get this and make sure all your earnings are reported).
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.
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.
Illegal immigrants can get social security numbers by stealing other peoples identitys.
No, not legally.
Yes, I have had friends who received Social Security and food stamps and they were illegal immigrants. They were very pleasant people and hard workers but they were also illeg…al.
You can draw it at 62, but if you wait until 65 you will get more.
No. Social Security is ONLY paid to legal citizens of the United States. Because, in order to get it, you need a social security number, which illegal aliens are not entitled …to have until they are legal. So no, they are not allowed to have it.
Only if your daughter is a disabled person; if she qualifies for SSI now.
not if they do not have citizenship or possibly have a higher chance of it if they are applying for citizenship.
They pay into the system but will never get credit. Many pay intothe ITIN system set by the federal government to collect tax onwages undocumented workers claim. And the gover…nment knows thatthey are here undocumented. These people pay into the system butare not allowed legal status. Not citizenship papers but at leastas a residends.
