What are the consequences of not renewing a green card?

Asked over 2 years ago - Orlando, FL

The fee to to renew is now $450 and I am retired, on social security and cannot afford this. I have been in the US for 20 years and have already renewed my green card once. I do not wish to go to the expense of renewing again. I do not have any criminal issues.

    Answered . The consequences are as my colleagues stated. In addition you could be denied further SS benefits if you can not show that you have maintained your status.

    Have you considered applying for naturalization so that you never have to worry about this again?
