Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy t help you.

Unless you apply for green card or stay in US you will not get US social security benefits. Currently there's no totalization agreement between US and India that would allow you to receive benefits if you are not US citizen or resident.

If you are working in US for more than 10 years you are eligible for green card. You will need to file an application for adjustment of status, pay the fees and go through the interview/fingerprint process. It takes about 12 - 18 month to get a green card, depending where you live in the US.
