Social Security & Immigrants

Professionals who help retirement-age workers with questions about Social Security should be well-informed on how immigrants - both legal and undocumented - affect and are affected by the Social Security program.

This course is comprised of eight sections:
1. Course introduction followed by a discussion of the value of professionals who can confidently explain the most up-to-date information to help immigrants with their work, Social Security and tax-related questions.
2. Answers certain questions related to Social Security and immigration that are commonly asked, such as "Will Social Security be there for me?" or "Who qualifies for Social Security benefits?"
3. Terms used in the presentation are defined and legal classes of admission for foreign nationals trying to attain Legal Permanent Resident status in the U.S. are explained.
4. Addresses the issue of immigration as a current relevant news topic, those persons seeking protection in the U.S., and Social Security for non-citizens and the use of fake, stolen or expired Social Security numbers.
5. The benefits, details, application process and use of another important number, the Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) are covered.
6. Answers the immigration questions of who is actually working, how are they hired, who pays taxes, and how are taxes paid without a Social Security number.
7. There are certain rules about collecting Social Security benefits that apply to those retiring in other countries, how those benefits are taxed, and if foreign pensions affect benefits.
8. The presentation concludes with distinguishing fact versus fiction about legal immigration, taxes paid by undocumented immigrants and the affect that all immigrants have on the Social Security program.
