My dad (58 years old) recently received US Green Card. He is working now as an independent contractor (truck driver) in Pennsylvania state and gets 1099 form at the end of the year. CPA office, where all our family does taxes, deducts a static amount of $2000 out of his yearly income (which is around 50K-55K) towards IRS.
Once retired, what's the monthly pension amount he can consider to receive? What can be done to increase this amount?How about asking CPA office to deduct more? Thanks for your valuable opinions.
Addition: The reason I asked this question is one of my friend's mother came to US on the approved Green Card at the age of 54, and for the next 5 year has worked as a weekend speaker on one of the Christian radio. She was not getting paid so well for the job, but after retire, she is having around $650 pension monthly payments. Assumption: you don't have to work too long to get a pension payments in the country.
