Social Security Changes May Affect Immigrants in 2020

According to new regulations issued by the US Department of Homeland Security, the Social Security Administration will not pay monthly retirement or disability benefits to immigrants in an irregular situation – such as, 30 days or a month after they were deported.

So far, as it is known, undocumented immigrants who are deported can claim from the Social Security Administration (SSA) retirement benefits if they meet the requirements to obtain that right. However, recently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) established an agreement defining the terms, conditions, and guarantees under which DHS will provide information to the Social Security Administration to identify to foreigners who leave the US voluntarily and to those who are expelled; also indicating the suspension of payments or the lack of benefit payments or both.

Both units will verify information to determine to whom the new rule will apply.

Those affected by the new regulations would be:

– Immigrants who do not have Permanent Residence

– The undocumented deportees

– Immigrants who left the country (USA) voluntarily

The new regulations will receive comments until January 19, 2020, then they will be reviewed and issued the final regulations.

Finally I want to wish our readers together with their families a Merry Christmas!
