Good morning David,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

You wrote: I want to opt out of monthly payments from social security and take a lump sum payout, what are my options. I'm not sure where you got the idea that you can opt out of social security and take a lump sum benefit, and I am sorry, but there is no such program and there never has been.

Is is not possible to opt out of social security and get a lump sum payment from social security.
