Is there any change in the policy of the US Govt that will enable H1 B visa holders from India who have returned home after working six years on the H1B visa a refund of the social security taxes they paid while they were working in the US ?I was advised four years ago that it is an amount that I must forget but recently some progress was made according to this news report - H1B visa social security
I am not asking whether the refund will be made available immediately but the question is will it be available at all or when the individual reaches the age of 65 in India ?
So my case is a little different as I have actually spent 10 years in the US. Fours years on a F1 visa (where I presume I paid taxes) and 6 years on the H1 B visa. So I would appreciate the answer being specific to my case as opposed to a generic answer.
