Does anyone know for certain if this is true? My local SS office doesn't even know, and when I wrote to Washington,DC, I only got a form letter back telling me how to figure out benefits based on income and contributions. Anyone out there tried to collect SS as a resident alien?


fyi, I'm a U.S. citizen, so I do not have any first-hand experience on this issue.

I took a stroll over to the website of the U.S. Social Security Administration, and found some info that may be of use to you ...

SSA - Office of International Programs (includes a specific address at the bottom where you may write for further information.)This page includes info on 17 countries, including Canada ...

SSA home page ...

Hope this is of some help to you!
