in immigrant came here at 65 years old, and immediately started to work in a warehouse since then, today she has 68 years old, and keep working. the person earns about 450 after taxes every week, and filed her taxes every year. single. how is calculated the time when she will be able to collect minimum income from retirement? I overheard she has to wait 10 years/ is this true?
The best way to get an answer to that is to contact Social Security. She should not have to wait 10 years but whether she has enough earnings to get credit for work is the issue. This pamphlet will provide additional information. https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10377.pdf
I agree with Mr. Chaban. In order to qualify for any social security benefits there must be a minimum number of "credits."
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
Yes, contact SS to find out how many credits she has. And, yes, it does require 40 credits, ten years of earnings to qualify on her own earnings, but she may be half way there.
also, in some cases depending where she is from, earnings of another country can impact the benefits she receives
