Public Description:  

H.R. 709, Total Overhaul of Totalization Agreements Law of 2007, would prohibit an illegal alien, for purposes of Social Security benefits, from being credited for income earned while he/she is not authorized to work in the United States. It also would stipulate that this prohibition was not applicable retroactively, so that all benefits already granted would not be affected. It would require all Social Security totalization agreements to include requiring the sending country of a naturalized citizen or lawful permanent resident worker to submit to the United States any social security taxes paid to that country, and vice versa for U.S. workers going abroad.
