Has anybody used the I-864W in place of the I-864? The instructions are not clear on what evidence you need to show proof of 40 credits earned. If anybody has successfully used this I would love to hear from you and hear exactly what you used as evidence.

Thanks!

Request a statement from the Social Security Administration. If the statements says you've earned enough credits for retirement benefits then you've got at least 40 credits.

Thanks so much for the reply JimVaPhuong. My husband is the intending immigrant and his newest statement DOES say he has earned enough credits to qualify for benefits (last statement said he had earned 36 credits but now I guess he has the full 40!)

I have ordered a "certified earnings statement" for my husband from SSA but it hasn't arrived yet. Do I just use these statements from SSA as "evidence" that he qualifies for the I-864W? I am worried it may be confusing because as you said, the statement says "You have earned enough credits to qualify for benefits" instead of saying, "You have earned 40 credits...."

Thanks again for an answer!

Yeah, actually, if you read the statement it explains how the credits work, and that you must have 40 credits in order to be eligible for retirement benefits. It doesn't actually state the number of credits you have, though. The certified earnings statement might be even better, but the regular statement should also be good enough.
