Introduced in House (02/03/1983)
Social Security Alien and Foreign Resident Benefits Limitation Act of 1983 - Amends title II (Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance) of the Social Security Act to provide that an individual who is not a U.S. citizen or national and whose entitlement to title II benefits is based upon the wages and self-employment income of another individual residing in a foreign country shall not be entitled to such benefits until such other individual becomes a resident of the United States.
Prohibits entitlement to title II benefits in the case of an individual who is not a U.S. citizen or national and whose entitlement is based on the wages and self-employment income of another individual unless: (1) such other individual is a U.S. citizen or national or is lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence or employment; or (2) such individual is a surviving spouse whose relationship existed at least one year before the wage earner's retirement.
Makes the prohibitions under this Act inapplicable in any case where they would contravene a treaty obligation of the United States or an international social security agreement between the United States and another country.
