People have money taken out of their paycheck, and the employer is taxed the same amount, in order to create funds to create your retirement package.
Its dependent on how much you pay in. Those who pay in a lot get a lot. Those who don't, dont get much. My uncle isnt going to get a ton. My aunt is going to get a ton. My dad is going to really collect, my mom is going to do average.
Its all a scam. That money isnt there. DC doesnt keep track of money like that. They dont care. Its a big trough that the pigs feed out of every tax season.
The proof in just how corrupted and misused would be in this case- the younger generation opts out. SS is not used as a retirement tool for your own personal welfare, its used to fund all the bullshit tha the feds love to get their dirty paws into.
If the younger generation opted out, it wouldnt just collapse SS, but it would collpase the entire federal goverenment. The gov would not be able to function without that 12+% weekly collection from every working american, that entire system would collapse.
Which is bullshit, because that money is supposed to be put aside for future use. Its not.
And this is why I say I want out. Its not because I dont think its a good plan. Its because its run by people who simply cannot be trusted. They are destroying it, they are destroying almost everything, with no end in sight.
There is no special account with my money I have already paid into waiting for me, collecting interest (preferably higher than the rate of inflation haha).
DC is out of control, and they are going to look out for each other long before they look out for me.
