Financee Is Not a U.S. Citizen

Can My Undocumented Fiancee Collect A Spousal Benefit If We Marry?

Dear Larry,

I have been living with my fiancee for 4 years. I am 72. She is 65. Should we get married to optimize SS income? One complication. She is a Colombian national that has lived and worked in the US over 10 years. She is 'undocumented' in the US and I had been planning to marry.her to remove this obstacle. She has no SS number.

Thanks in advance

Hi, I don't know about immigration law, but if you inform the authorities that she is living here as an undocumented alien they could, I would think, deport her.
