You can access the Legal Permanent Resident page when the AP is a noncitizen. If you designate someone as a noncitizen on the Citizenship page, you then select Legal Permanent Resident on the INS Designation page, then the Legal Permanent Resident page is enabled.
You can use this page to capture 40 Quarters information if the number of years worked is greater than 10. The Case Manager determines if the noncitizen AP has worked a minimum of 40 qualifying quarters (about 10 years) under Title II of the Social Security Act or can be credited with a total of 40 qualifying quarters under Title II of the Social Security Act as worked by a combination of:
the parent(s) of the noncitizen while the noncitizen was under age 18 including quarters
worked before the noncitizen was born; and/or
the spouse of the noncitizen during their marriage if the noncitizen remains married to the spouse or is widowed
