4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

i am kind of confused about the I-864w

it says quote

You have earned (or can be credited with) 40 quarters

of coverage under the Social Security Act (SSA)

now, i have 35 credits already from working in the us , can i add my credits from my home country under the ( International Totalization program thru U.S. International Social Security Agreements ) ? and what documents do i need ?

or

can i add my husbands credits to my credits ? if i can what documents would i need ?

Has anybody had a similar situation ?

i am just checking on my options.

any help would be appreciated , thanks
