  • Social Security for Green Card

    I'm a Canadian citizen. I moved down to the US in 2007 for medical school on an F1 student visa. I then transitioned to an H1B visa and subsequently a green card during training (4 years of residency, 1 of fellowship). I've been an attending for almost two years now. Assuming I remain in the US until retirement, am I eligible for the social security benefit that I'm contributing to via my taxes? Thanks!

      Yes. My FIL gets it and he is green card holder.

        Although I just read that Social Security will be insolvent in 2024. We will see what happens, but some sort of entitlement reform will happen.

          You should go to:

          https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount

          and check your benefits! It's free and should be done periodically (like https://www.annualcreditreport.com).

          It's actually a pretty easy quick process, and a great website.
