Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. The courts have long ruled that individuals' do not have any ownership interest in Social Security, so any future payments made out of Social Security are at the discretion of a future Congress, which may lower or reduce benefits as it sees fit. Social Security taken out of wages are "taxes" not "contributions" to a retirement plan.
Are you asking how you would qualify to start receiving benefits?
