    I have worked legally in California since 1995
    Unfortunately I was deported in 2004.
    I now have $15000 in my social security account
    I'm really in need of that money right now
    Is there any way Ican get MY money back?

    It isn't yours.

    You pay Social Security taxes into a common Social Security pool, and receive a fixed amount of benefits once you retire, based upon employment "credits" you have earned over the course of your working life.

    You may not apply to receive Social Security benefits until you are at least 61 years and 9 months of age (though this age is gradually adjusting upwards).

    Since you no longer live in the US, you need to address your questions to the International Social Security office nearest you.

    If you can get yours back then I would want mine back too , and trust me, mine is way more then $15,000.

    Social Security is an INSURANCE. You pay into the insurance fund and as Missy stated you can draw against the fund when you reach a certain age.

    The money you paid in is used to pay todays benefits to seniors and others. Future deposits into the fund by future employees will fund your retirement if you are eligable for it.
