Nope, and you won't see anywhere near the amount you paid in for other
insurance either. You, like many other people, are confusing Social
Security, and insurance policy, with something like a 401K, which is a
retirement plan. Social Security was never intended, nor should it be
viewed as a retirement plan.

Secrecy, being an instrument of conspiracy, ought never to be the
