How does a deportation or removal from the U.S. affect eligibility for Social Security Benefits?

Generally, anyone who has been deported or removed from the U.S. is no longer eligible to receive Social Security benefits. However, there are a few exceptions so some who have been deported or removed, and their dependents, may still qualify for Social Security Benefits.

For more information about whether someone you know who has been deported or removed may still qualify for Social Security Benefits see 20 CFR § 404.464, contact the Social Security Administration, and/or speak to an experienced Social Security Benefits Attorney for legal advice.
