SS payroll is tax deducted from even the smallest paychecks to build the Social Security Trust Fund.
Congress and presidents borrow and spend the entire fund as fast as it accumulates. Therefore bought and paid for benefits must be paid from general tax revenues that Congress budgets each year with input and approval by the president.
