: : Dear Friends,
: : Following is the text of a letter which I received today from the Social Security Administration, in response to my recent action of having my Social Security contract legally rescinded. Their letter was dated July 14, 1997.
: : =========================================================
: : Dear Mr. Charpentier:
: : This is in response to your correspondence about the Social Security program. People cannot voluntarily end their participation in the program. The payment of Social Security taxes is mandatory, regardless of the citizenship or place of residence of either the employer or the employee. Unless specifically exempt by law, everyone working in the United States is required to pay Social Security taxes.
: : Similarly, people cannot withdraw the Social Security taxes that they have already paid. Social Security taxes paid by employees and employers are not placed in individual accounts, but are pooled to pay benefits to eligible workers and their families. Benefits are paid only on the basis of a voluntary application. (note: for you receiving this via email, the word voluntary was underlined in the last sentence)
: : The Social Security Administration (SSA) is required by law (at section 205 of the Social Security Act) to maintain records of workers' earnings and to establish any other record necessary to carry out our responsibilities under the Social Security Act. Because many people have the same name, or change their name, a reliable and permanent system was needed to distinguish one individual from another in our records. The Social Security account number system was established to meet that need.
: : The constitutionality of the Social Security system, as established by the Social Security Act, and mandatory individual participation have already been established by the Supreme Court. We will not respond further to your correspondence about voluntary participation in the Social Security program or the withdrawal of Social Security taxes.
: : The Internal Revenue Service has jurisdiction over the issue of liability for Social Security taxes; the Immigration and Naturalization Service has jurisdiction over the issue of citizenship. If you have questions about either of these subjects, you should contact one of those Agencies.
: : Sincerely,
: : Charles H. Mullen

: : P.S. I haven't yet had time to dissect this letter for accuracy, or outright lies. I would appreciate your feedback, citing the applicable laws. Thanks.
Chris, we have a better idea than for us to cite the applicable laws that make SS less than mandatory. You cite the applicable law(s) that make it mandatory. Yes, you mentioned the section of code (not law, but restatement of law in codified (subject matter indexed) form) that makes a requirement of the SSA, but failed to make showing that any company or private party engaged in a common right occupation must perform.
Beside, we still don't have a clear definition of just which of the "U.S.'s" is being referred to from your statement. Perhaps the numerous researchers that have found, and the others that have confirmed the finding, that the SS Act was enacted for the residents of the Northern Marianas are full of malarky? Whereas you made the assertion, the burden of proof is upon you (and the SS Admin. and/or whomever).
