    Sure. They paid for it just like everybody else.

    • ECA says:

      WRONG..
      MANY did not.
      MANY paid into the CORP retirement..and didnt have to pay Social sec.
      ALSO Social sec. is limited to the first 100k..after that they dont need to PAY into it.
      ALSO, its a MAX of $2600 per year..
      ALSO, social sec, is based on your LAST 10 years..ONLY.

      ALSO, cutting workers to UNDER 36 hours per week, CUTS company payments to SOCIAL SEC. And CUTS retirement pay.

      My mother who worked, DIDNT GET social sec, Hers is based on her husband..which only made it 1.5 times HIS RETIREMENT.. He died, and NOW she only gets HIS retirement and LOST the .5 increase..She gets $600 per month..

      MANY business like to RETIRE/FIRE low income workers..EARLY. They like to FORCE extra work onto them also..trying to get them to QUIT..before retirement.. LONG term workers tend to get MORE money.. and generally have higher wages from being long term. AND cut hours.. They want you to QUIT early with SHORTER hours..and your retirement is cut in 1/2…

      $26,000??
      I would LOVE to get 1/2 of that..

      DELTA airlines filed bankruptcy..and TOOK ALL RETIREMENT FUNDS…all those people, had to go onto Social sec..even tho they PAID for a retirement fund that would TRIPLE what Social sec would be paying them..

      • This is just ignorant. First off anyone who has held some property and has a few dollars in the bank can be a “millionaire” and be essentially broke unless they sell everything.

        AND if we are going to begin to think this way about net worth then let’s do it right and call for a wealth tax like they use in Switzerland! This notion will also quiet Buffet and Gates.

        ALSO I have worked for plenty of companies who have retirement systems and I am still required to pay SSI. It’s the law.

      • LibertyLover says:

        MANY did not.

        Then they broke the law and all bets are off.

        How hard is that to understand?

        • bobbo, Financial Advisor to the Stars says:

          Well Loser, off the top of my head, I recall that certain government workers and sub contractors and in general the Rail Roads and closely related Unions were exempt from Soc Sec participation in favor of their already existing as good or better retirement system.

          All kinds of people got hosed because of those favored statuses as the small print gained precedence over the years.

          Why so closed minded and assuming? WHAT?—you think its an issue of liberty?

          ……oh, loser.

    • Dallas says:

      It’s not a savings plan for the sheeple but rather an insurance of sorts.

      If was a savings plan, it would have been called the Sheeple Savings Plan.

  2. Cephus says:

    Do they pay into it? Then of course they should be able to get the money they put into it out again. Social Security isn’t a tax, it’s an investment.

    • vdeane says:

      Social Security is NOT an investment. There is no account with your name on it accumulating money. The money you “pay into” SS goes to CURRENT beneficiaries. When you retire and claim SS, the money you get will not have been the money you “paid into”, but rather money collected from other people as a tax, just as your money is collected as a tax and re-distributed to seniors. The myth of SS being an investment like a 401k needs to die.

      • Pmitchell says:

        WRONG ….. go read before you get on the interwebtubes and make a fool of your self .
        You do have an account it is called an social security number , they know exactly what you have paid and exactly what you will be paid out

        • vdeane says:

          Maybe your should go read. Just google “social security myths”. It’s mentioned, time and again, that it’s a pay-as-you-go system and always has been. The SSN is no more an account number than the number on your driver’s licence is. I’d post links, but my last post attempt with links failed.

          • bobbo, Financial Advisor to the Stars says:

            Gee, when the cops put my license number thru the system they come back and ask me if I EVER drive the speed limit.

            Its like an account for some purposes, but not like an account for other purposes.

            Why must all too many issues default along the simplest of extreme characterizations?

            Ain’t you got no appreciation for ambiguity at all?

    • dusanmal says:

      When introduced SS was NOT intended to be a tax or investment. It have been sold to American people as a mandatory Government backed insurance (just like something else recently…) from extreme old age for which one could not rationally plan.
      Person (of any wealth) have been supposed to PLAN his/her life ahead and provide for own retirement as best they could. However, planning requires estimate of longevity. For those people living beyond average life span of the day (65), Government established SS as insurance mechanism, so that they do not go without any funds if they are lucky to live longer than expected.
      As such (insurance), no one should be able to restrict it by wealth of recipient. However, same as when it was introduced, it works as intended only and only if it is limited by age. Instead of “65 for ever” the only change that should be made is that it becomes available once you live beyond average life span of that moment. If lifespan grows, later, if it shrinks, faster,…

      • Pmitchell says:

        Social security was originally enacted for widows who at that time were outliving there husbands and had no source of viable income

      • So what says:

        You were never supposed to live long enough to collect it.

  3. ± says:

    I look forward to getting the meager return on the 100s of thousands of dollars that I have invested in Social Security over my lifetime. How much money I have when I start getting paid back is irrelevant.

        Besides having wrong headed politics, you’re a smacked ass. I’ve been working full time for 42 years and that chart shows that I’ve paid in around $300,000. That doesn’t include the matching amount my employers paid in, some portion of which would be in my own pocket if they didn’t have to part with the money.

        Who’s the liar?

          Really? I just added up the last 40 numbers roughly in my head and came to about $140,000 or so.

          I recall when I never added numbers without a tape. The tape is gone and evidently so is my neurobiological adding machine.

          Yes–300K would be multiples of 100k’s. But I forget your original complaint==I assume you will still get more out than you put in? Or are you complaining of any means testing in the future? AKA==not happy with what you have but overly concerned about anything you have been “cheated” out of?

          Whatever floats your boat. Shylock wanted what was due to him as well.

          “I deserve whats mine…. screw the fucked over masses. They didn’t make the right decisions like I did.”

            You’re obviously not here to have a cogent sequential discussion. Stop pretending like you are.

            PM==I have to ask you what you think sequential means?

            Or is that too direct?

  4. Ivana Gisagna says:

    The government knows exactly how much each individual has paid in. Once a recipient has collected that amount, any further payouts should be means tested.

  5. I think Social Security would be worthwhile even if it were means-tested. If all your other retirement plans go awry as they often do, this is the one that remains. If the bankers, investment counselors, and other con artists successfully separate you from your money, Social Security remains. Insurance has value in the peace of mind it gives you, even if you never need to file a claim. Social Security can be thought of in that same way.

  6. Bill says:

    the chart compares apples to oranges. median income does not equal net worth, although I would expect them to be positively correlated.

    I like the idea of means testing once you have drawn more than a certain %-age of what you paid in.

    • You can wish for this or that but this is a contract and people are “entitled” to what they are owed. Period. If you do not like it then change it. But note that the change will affect YOU and not those collecting SS today.

  7. WmDE says:

    We can’t all be Ida May Fuller. $24.75 paid in. $22,888.92 received.

  8. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    By law—yes, of course. If they lose their millions, then the limitation would not apply.

    By social policy: SS is a welfare program and should be means tested.

    More important: the Already Too Rich should be taxed the honest 35-40% of income as called for in the code. Loopholes, dodges, and paid for entitlements should not be allowed.

    Lack of social mobility and landed Gentry have reached banana state proportions in the GOUSA==>worse than when the Great Depression hit.

  9. Old Guy says:

    I’ll take the money. I paid into it… but, how is it not a giant PONZI scheme anyway?
    Really?

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      Narrow Context: Because the full faith and credit of the USA stands behind the fund==not just the money collected otherwise for the fund.

      Broad Context: Everything is a Ponzi Scheme. The fraud of inflation or growth covering a multitude of sins.

      • McCullough says:

        “Because the full faith and credit of the USA stands behind the fund”

        HAW HAW, Do unicorns come with that Faith and Credit?

          Slow down a bit there slick. All kinds of reality is passing you buy without the benefit of your observation.

  10. McCullough says:

    We really need to retire the term “millionaire” as some kind of benchmark.

    A million dollars just aint shit these days. If you retire with a net worth of a million dollars at say age 63, and you didn’t invest in a 401K scam that could disappear at any given moment, you have to rely on that for 20 – 30 years.

            I have never cared about money either, but I have been cautious about where it went, I will not count on the government to take care of me. If SS is there when I choose to retire fine, but I won’t “depend” on it.

          • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

            McC–I consider myself “luckier” than most. But its true, I never cared about money, and my options are limited now. I don’t even much care, but I do notice it.

            BUT—the issue is….. what? From whether Millionaires should get SS segue into a Million Dollar Estate at time of retirement is not ….what?…. in your view?

            You dodge 95% of any question ever put to you. Mine was: if MM is shit, what about the 90% (sic-?) of society that retires with only SS to call on?

            I mean…. whats your point…..really? That more is better??? Ha, ha. There is even that ad on tv about little kiddies saying that “More is Better” with the annoucer saying “More is Better…. its not that complicated.”

            Care to move beyond the 8 yo level? I say this not to needle you but to move the discussion along?

            Who says that an estate well above the 90th percentile is insignificant?

            WHO SAYS THAT McC??? Iow—who are you???

            Can you appreciate the fruits of your success? What does your self sufficiency really mean to you? Does that position help or hinder your empathy to your fellow man? etc.

    “27% have income of LESS THAN $15,000” Thats the Current min wage..40 hours per week, full time..
    RETIREMENT age should be based on PAST wages, NOT current wages.. Wages from about $1.65-2.35 per hour..
    in the end, MOST people who retire under $15k per year will only be getting about $600-800 per month..

    I always understood SS to be a kind of insurance thing. And typically you don’t get pay off from insurance policies, unless you really need them. Not just because you reach some age. So no, I don’t think Millionaires should be getting SS payments. If anything, they ought to keep paying into it.

    When my father took a part time job, after his retirement. The US govt. withheld SS from what little he was making. Making hardly worth the cost of travel, etc, to be doing the job at all. But Millionaires are always making money, from all sorts of interest and dividend bearing investments, etc. So technically, they are earning a living, even in retirement. So the idea that they’re receiving SS payments, without paying into SS any longer, makes no sense. And Millionaires certainly aren’t IN NEED, of Social Security payouts. The way most citizens are in their old age. Paying for the rising cost of food, gas, and medications.

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      “I always understood SS to be a kind of insurance thing. And typically you don’t get pay off from insurance policies, unless you really need them.” /// Since SS pays on reaching a certain age, why don’t you think its “not” like insurance? Focusing on the guranteed payment, looks more like a RETIREMENT program to me. Weird Huh?

      Ha, ha.

  25. Uncle Patso says:

    b,

    My comment about a million not being worth that much these days is less about the intentionally divisive question “Should Millionaires Be Able to Collect Social Security?” and more about the ravening monster inflation. Sure, some inflation comes from the increasing cost of energy now that most of the easy-to-mine fossil fuels are used up, but some of it comes from the inability to maintain enough austerity in fiscal policy to keep the value of money up. The Chinese invented paper money centuries and centuries ago and have tried it more than once. Every time, the value of the money slowly eroded until it fit the old saying of not being worth the paper it’s printed on, even though the very cheapest paper was eventually used.

    The prices of most things have passed 10X what it was when I was a kid and is rapidly approaching 15X. So when someone bandies about the word “millionaires” as provocative, I yawn.

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      Fair enough Uncle but on some level that on faith I take to be relevant you are CONFLATING several issues.

      The law has been followed for 70 years that millionaires and billionaires and the dirt poor who only made one payment into the system get their SS on reaching 65. Given that, asking if Millionaires should get their SS is like asking if children should be allowed to eat: its not an issue.

      But should millionaires be allowed to draw SS IN THE FUTURE? That is a live question restated as: “Should safety net services be means tested or not.”

      My link shows that SS has changed over the years. In substance, SS is a welfare program more like any other than not. The contributions to the plan are more like a general revenue tax than not.

      SUBSTANCE–not BS should control our analysis of such issues. Saying millionaires should continue in the program because a million dollars has been subjected to inflation is a red herring. Its not the issue.

      The up our own asses beatification of the RICH that takes place in the GOUSA is a mass deception beyond belief. You should not do you part to support it.

      RICH = CRIMINAL.

      ftn–a MM isn’t what it used to be I agree. Fun to see code section changes upping first level taxation to 5 MM and more. Yes====lets all pity the poor Millionaire. Do away with Inheritance Taxes and all the rest.

      SO MY QUESTION IS: if a Million is not that much given inflation and all==how much is NOTHING!!!! Does inflation not affect the poor as well. Poor as in minimun wage, food programs, basic health service etc?

      Freaking Idiots!!!

      Ha, ha. I just got up and already I want a beer. I’m not sure, but I think this is how alcoholism starts.

      My link shows the contribution amounts have changed over the years. Its a gov progra

        b,

        I see your point. Inflation is a particular bugaboo of mine, and I was using _this_ discussion to complain about _that_. I see how you could read it as feeling a little sorry for the “poor millionaires.”

        When you say
        ‘But should millionaires be allowed to draw SS IN THE FUTURE? That is a live question restated as: “Should safety net services be means tested or not.”’
        you get into entitlement reform, and that has been one of the top 2 or 3 hardest-to-deal-with issues for the last 40 years. It brings out strongly defensive feelings in pretty much everybody — they all feel threatened at a basic level, even though it has been obvious the whole time that something really has to be done. I’ve always been amazed they were able to get the last couple of fixes to Social Security done, given the “third rail” aspect.

        It’s pretty obvious that any significant reform has to come from the middle of the road, some options from column A and some from column B, etc., but the way the country is getting more and more polarized, I don’t see that happening any time soon.

        It looks like Obama is trying to follow that path, but all he gets for his efforts is snub after snub, with the no-longer-Grand GOP even abandoning their own positions if he so much as says “maybe…” I keep hoping he’ll deliver a major speech on the theme of Motherhood, the Flag and Apple Pie, just to watch the PartyOfNO! try to argue against those things.

        Maybe it’s time for a third party, a party of radical centrists, the American Compromise Party, the party of ♫ “We can work this out.” ♫

    Should Millionaires Be Able to Collect Social Security?

    If said millionaires paid into it then I have no problem with them collecting in on what they’re entitled to. Their current financial situation should not disqualify them from collecting their due entitlement from the government’s ponzi scheme.

    My Boos, 78 years old. Gets at least 2k+ in SSI, gets pay by the company in 6 figures, runs the facility I’m in so lean it’s not even funny. Where does the profit and revenues go, straight to his pocket as bonuses and raises. Absolutely no one in the facility has gotten a raise in decades or more 🙂 I’m not expected to ever get a raise either hahaha Hell, I can’t even get a caliper to use, that’s how penny pinching this FAR right republican is, and he complains about Obama stuff? LMAO. Gotta love the rich!

    • ramuno says:

      Millionaires should be able to get back what they paid in just like anyone…but they should have to pay that small percentage of income up to at least $25oK and not stop paying at $104K. That would give the fund more than enough $ for the future.

  28. Hmeyers says:

    This is a red herring.

    Because the amount of $$$ that would be saved would be something like $500 million a year — big deal.

    The unwashed masses love a class warfare argument and fall for it every time like a dog that isn’t house broken.

    “You can arrive in your private jet at Kennedy Airport, take a private limousine and go straight to the shelter system, walk in the door, and we’ve got to give you shelter,” Bloomberg said, speaking on the radio.

  30. Why not? I hope it’s a good idea for every1
