Firstly,I got a US SS number and an immigration visa for a relatively brief visit to the US. I then went to Australia for a couple of years. When I returned to the US, my SS number was still valid.
Secondly, there is a lot of reciprocity in Social Security accounts between different countries. When working out the amount of my wife's SS on her retirement, the US people were quite happy to see if the time she had worked in England and paid the English equivalent of SS would add to the US SS she would get.
