Customer Question
About social security laws. ...

About social security laws.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Oregon

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?

I applied for survivorship benefit. My husband passed away in August 2017, and I’m getting his benefit from Opm (federal) since January 2018. I applied for ss survivor benefit and got approved yesterday. Now i held a green card since 1985. With ss benefit i can only get out of the country for 30 consecutive days. Is this correct?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Also about residency issue while a resident alien or green card holder. Thank you.
