Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Permanent green card has to be renewed every 10 years. The first conditional card issued for 2 years had to be renewed after 2 years, if you didn't you lost it. Which means you may not be eligible to collect social security benefits. I would suggest to visit your local immigration office as soon as possible and apply for a new card immediately. You will not be able to return to US with expired conditional card.
