Social Security isn't insurance. It doesn't function like insurance. It's not even close.


Benefits promises far exceed dedicated tax revenues:
Myth: Each worker has his or her own Social Security retirement “account” at the Social Security Administration.
Fact: No—Social Security is not a personal investment program. It is a “pay-as-you-go” Federal entitlement program where current workers fund benefits for current retirees and disabled Americans.
