I-134 and social security benefits for K1 process

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have received our NOA2 approval and my fiancee is now getting ready for her interview. I am self employed and have annual income that varies a lot from year to year but I have annual social security benefits that exceed 125% of the Federal poverty level. If I submit a social security statement that shows my benefits exceed the 125% of poverty level will I need to also submit substantial documentation to support my other income or will the SS benefits be enough? Thank You

You also need to supply 3 years of tax returns to ensure you don't get an RFE.

Best of luck

What kind of Social Security benefits are you receiving? Social Security retirement? SSDI? SSI?

Social Security retirement and SSDI are qualifying income. SSI is not.

I have Social Security Retirement benefits that exceed 125% of the Federal poverty level.

No worries, then. You're qualified. Social Security retirement is an earned benefit that you and your employer paid for when you were working. Same with SSDI. SSI is not considered qualifying income because it's a federal welfare program paid for by the taxpayers of the US.
