The "Valid for work only" refers to the stamp on your SS Card that is palced there to show when you complete the I-9 for a new job the employer has to have proof from you that you have work authorization (ie a green card, or EAD card). As an employee you would be required to contribute through your wages to the SS program and if you stay long enough to become a US Citizen the wage credits for that time can be applied to your SS Retirement or if need be SS Disability credits. The only group of immigrants that do not contribute to SS through wages earned by employment is the H2A farmworkers who are 1099ed and by IRS regulation are exempt from employer contributions to Government programs FIT/FICA/SS
