I have a question. Do these people who have been on food stamps and welfare all their lives get SS when they get 65? And Medicare?
To get SS you have to have a certain amount of working years--I think it's 40 quarters, or ten years--over your lifetime. Your benefits depend on how much you earned.
So, I doubt they get SS. I suppose they would get some sort of welfare, continued food stamps, and continued Medicaid.
