"I think you are probably right that this would attract too much attention, but it is interesting that it is a part of the system. How did you find out about this? Where do I look for information?"

I know a man who did it and another who considered it but changed his mind after considering the possible consequences. To tell you the truth, I don't know how to find out info. I would recommend starting with the Social Security Department.

It might actually be on their Web site, but I wouldn't count on it, as if they publicized this, the people most likely to opt out would probably be the ones the system needs most, those with high AGI who contribute a large amount in payroll taxes.
