What is House Bill H.R. 2745?
This bill would prohibit undocumented persons not authorized to work in the U.S. from receiving Social Security benefits. Current law forbids a person from receiving Social Security payments if they are here illegally, but their complete work history--including work done while in the U.S. illegally--can count toward Social Security benefits if the person later becomes a legal U.S. resident. This bill would disallow work hours done while in the U.S. illegally from counting toward such benefits.
The bill impacts undocumented American workers' access to Social Security benefits.
