Thanks for your question and good evening.You can apply here for social security and medicare.
Here is the information concerning medicare.
The following is taken from the SSA website for applying for Medicare and lists the documents that may be required to apply:
Here is what social security asks for.
We may also ask you to provide documents to show that you are eligible:
I seen this on the SS web, but as you mentioned it states "may be required", lets say this person has W-2 forms and/or tax return for last year (not self employment) but is not US born or US naturalization or ailen card or visa. can this person still apply?
Did this person enter illegally?
Does this person have a valid social security number here please clarify for me??
not exactly sure because i don't know this person personally, but i think he came legally but was unable to get ailen card or something
he does have SS i think since he been working and paying taxes, ss, etc
Well they can apply and see if they get approved.Certainly there is no harm in filing here and seeing if they are awarded benefits.From what you state if they have a social security card and other tax information they should apply and see where it goes.
just a curiosity but if he applies and SS determines he is illegal to stay what would happen? would he be deported?
And he might qualify for SSI or SSDI here as well if there is any disabillity present.It is worth a try to seek benefits.
No social security just approves or denies benefits.
also... is there a penalty if he is over 65, lets say 68 and has not applied medicare yet? but he has personla health insurance
