The fist question I ask is "Did you voluntarily accept he SSN or did your parents obtain it for you as a minor?"
What they said about being pooled is kind of vague. It is not pooled to be given out, it is pooled as part of the National Treasury, not earmarked in any way for anything. It is an Income tax in that it is a tax measured by income and goes with all other taxes "on" income.
You don't need a SSN for anything. The tax code requires employers to "request" the taxpayers identity number of any employee. If they do not get it through all resonable attempts, they are permitted a waiver to claim that they did not fail to request it.
No one is required by law to pay into Social Security. Since it is part of the tax code, only taxpayers, as defined in the code are liable for SS tax. How you bacome a taxpayer is by signing a W-4. The Tax Code doesn't make anyone lible for any tax by failing to specify who is liable and what is the subject of the tax.
