Transfer Past Earnings To New Ssn

Recommended Posts

Transfer Past Earnings to New SSN

If you worked with a SSN that wasn't yours, your can transfer your earning onto your new SSN.

- Collect old W-2 forms (usually attached to your previous tax returns). If you don't have these, ask your employers to supply you with copies of the specific years you worked with them. 

-Take your taxes and W-2 forms to the Social Security Office and tell them you want to transfer your earnings to your newly issued SSN. Does not matter if your W-2s list your fake SSN or ITIN, as long as they contain your full name (not any fake names you were working under).

- They will make copies of the W-2 forms and start the process. You will get a letter in about a month of the update.

I understand is a risky situation...but a lot of DREAMers were able to do it successfully, especially if you worked for more than 5 years....it is only right you rightly claim what is yours.

If someone young has only worked for a few years, it will really not make huge difference on the retirement credit but if you have dependents with valid ss numbers I would speak to a tax professional to get it squared out and might qualify to go back up to 3 years for unclaimed credits even if you did your taxes. If you don't want to draw attention have a tax proffessional do it for you. People have done this all the time when they got their green card.

On the other hand, if you get things squared out now regardless, you might not have to pay tax fines for one of the requirements that Immigration reform bill has. If immigration reform was to pass

Well having filed your taxes (with ITIN) will be suffice in regards to proving you paid taxes if immigration reform bill passes.
