Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and can assist.
Resident aliens (RA) can vest and collect social security benefits as citizens do. The RA have to be here legally, and have to work for employers who contributed social security taxes on their behalf. Most frequent are green card holders, who qualify for benefits the same way citizens do, with 40 quarters of work, meet certain age requirements, etc.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Follow-up questions are welcomed. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
