Social Security Act, Section 202(n)

A. Policy

A determination of deportation is made solely by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

1. RSDI Benefits

Generally, an individual who has been deported after September 1, 1954 may not receive an RSDI benefit until they are lawfully admitted for permanent residence to the U.S. by DHS.

2. SSI Benefits

If DHS states that an individual is a deportee, no payments may be made.

B. Procedure

Do not stop the individual from filing because of their alien status.

If the alien asks if they may be deported as a public charge for receiving SSI or has another question about deportation, refer them to DHS.

C. References
