I am Canadian and have worked in USA from Jun 2000 - Dec 2006. I have paid all the taxes, Can I get back my social security which I paid during my stay in USA?


Social Security tax is a tax that people working in the US must pay. You cannot "get it back".

    Worse yet, since the OP has not worked for 40 quarters in the US as yet, he is not eligible (at this time) to receive any Social Security benefits as a result of the Social Security tax paid thus far. – Dilip Sarwate Jun 30 '18 at 17:19
  • @DilipSarwate: Yes, but the US might have a treaty with his country that allows it to be counted for social security in his country. – user102008 Jun 30 '18 at 18:33

    @user102008 if so, you should add that to your answer, preferably with a source – briantist Jun 30 '18 at 21:33
