Default Social Security benefits awareness

I've been talking to lot of people including GC holders and even US citizens and I never got correct information. I started digging and found out some information. So for people who are thinking that your stay in US is of no use after living in this country for so many years...

1. Social security benefits will be paid to any one who has 40 credit points
2. You can earn at most 4 points per year
3. Benefits will be paid even if you are out of US

For more information google is always there for you:

Social Security Publications

Countries like Germany will pay the entire amount you contributed towards social security after 2 years of leaving the country(I personally received a lump sum). I wonder why US is stealing the money from the H1 holders.

Anyways for people who have worked here in US for more than 10 years don't think that your hardwork has gone waste... research more about SS benefits and keep your records upto date no matter where you are in the world and don't forget knock on US doors for your benefits.

Anyone with more information please contribute.

Default Benefits will be paid even if you are out of US

I donot think this is true for all countries.I believe applicable for those countries who have agreement with US.Definitely not for India.If you leave US even after 10 years of work 40 credits,you donot get it unless you have Green card or US citizenship.This is what I knew.Always I think I am doing donations with regard to Social Security and Medicare Taxes.Yes you are rightly said US stealing money from non-immigrants in general in the name of taxes.

Few points here...

1.) If you are NOT a US Citizen, but lived here for 10 years or more (has 40 Credits), then if you are from India, you would not get SSI.

2.) If you are a US Citizen, no matter where you are, you will get your SSI.

3.) If you are NOT a US Citizen, but you have 40 credits and live in one of the following countries listed on their site (No India in the list), you WILL get your SSI.

However, there is something written, which I a unable to wrap my head around.


"You are a citizen of one of the countries in Country List 4, and the worker on whose record your benefits are based lived in the United States for at least 10 years or earned at least 40 credits under the U.S. Social Security system. If you are receiving benefits as a dependent or survivor, see additional requirements."

Default with 40 credit hours Indian citizen r eligible ( see last paragraph)

What happens to your right to Social Security payments when you are outside the United States

If you are a U.S. citizen, you may receive your Social Security payments outside the United States as long as you are eligible for them.

However, there are certain countries to which we are not allowed to send payments.

If you are a citizen of one of the countries listed in Country List 1 , Social Security payments will keep coming no matter how long you stay outside the United States, as long as you are eligible for the payments.

If you are a citizen of one of the countries listed in Country List 2, you also may receive your payments as long as you are outside the United States, unless you are receiving your payments as a dependent or survivor. In that case, there are additional requirements you have to meet.

If you are not a U.S. citizen or a citizen of one of the other countries listed in Country List 1 and Country List 2, your payments will stop after you have been outside the United States for six full calendar months unless you meet one of the following exceptions:

You were eligible for monthly Social Security benefits for December 1956; or
You are in the active military or naval service of the United States; or
The worker on whose record your benefits are based had railroad work treated as covered employment by the Social Security program; or
The worker on whose record your benefits are based died while in the U.S. military service or as a result of a service-connected disability and was not dishonorably discharged; or
You are a resident of a country with which the United States has a Social Security agreement. Currently these countries are listed in Country List 3. However, the agreements with Austria, Belgium, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland permit you to receive benefits as a dependent or survivor of a worker while you reside in the foreign country. This is true only if the worker is (or was at the time of death) a U.S. citizen or a citizen of your country of residence; or
You are a citizen of one of the countries in Country List 4, and the worker on whose record your benefits are based lived in the United States for at least 10 years or earned at least 40 credits under the U.S. Social Security system. If you are receiving benefits as a dependent or survivor, see additional requirements.
