I remember as a young teenager, I started having the odd job here and there. Of all the monies I earned, a portion would go to my Social Security account. Up until my last day of work in February 2013, I was contributing a portion of my salary as insurance for my “golden years”. The money that is in my account is money that I saved.
There is absolutely no reason at all for ANYONE to say that this is an “entitlement” and that it has to be amended or “cut”. Now that I am in my “golden age”, it’s time to draw from my personal savings account.
You keep you greedy hands away from MY social security!
In the United States, Social Security is primarily the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) federal program.
The original Social Security Act and the current version of the Act, as amended, encompass several social welfare and social insurance programs. Social Security is funded through payroll taxes called Federal Insurance Contributions Act tax (FICA) and/or Self Employed Contributions Act Tax (SECA). Tax deposits are collected by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and are formally entrusted to the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund, the Federal Disability Insurance Trust Fund, the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund, or the Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund which make up the Social Security Trust Funds.
With few exceptions, all legal residents working in the United States now have an individual Social Security number.
Indeed nearly all working (and many non-working) residents since Social Security’s 1935 inception have had a Social Security number, because it is required to do a wide range of things including paying the IRS and getting a job.
