   To amend the Social Security Act to provide for the termination of 
   social security benefits for individuals who participated in Nazi 
  persecution, and for other purposes. <<NOTE: Dec. 18, 2014 -  [H.R. 
                                5739]>> 

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled, <<NOTE: No Social 
Security for Nazis Act.>> 
SECTION 1. <<NOTE: 42 USC 1305 note.>> SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``No Social Security for Nazis Act''.
SEC. 2. <<NOTE: 42 USC 402 note.>> FINDINGS.

    Congress finds the following:
            (1) Congress enacted social security legislation to provide 
        earned benefits for workers and their families, should they 
        retire, become disabled, or die.
            (2) Congress never intended for participants in Nazi 
        persecution to be allowed to enter the United States or to reap 
        the benefits of United States residency or citizenship, 
        including participation in the Nation's Social Security program.

        section as of the date on which such order became final;
            ``(B) an individual with respect to whom an order admitting

        (relating to participation in Nazi persecution), concealment of 
        a material fact about such conduct, or willful misrepresentation

        described in paragraph (1) as of the date of such revocation and 
        setting aside; and
            ``(C) an individual who pursuant to a settlement agreement

        based on the wages and self-employment income of any other 
        individual shall be paid to such individual for any month after 
        such termination; and
            ``(B) no supplemental security income benefits under title 
        XVI shall be paid to such individual for any such month, 
        including supplementary payments pursuant to an agreement for 
        Federal administration under section 1616(a) and payments
