Every month, the Social Security Administration keeps millions of dollars’ worth of benefit payments that have been rightfully earned by individuals with work histories that should entitle them to receive that money.
For most of us, taking anything that doesn’t belong to you is considered theft. Theft is a crime, and there are a lot of people who are paying the price for committing such a crime right now.
Maybe their crime was egregious as armed robbery. Perhaps they engaged in some less-physically violent form of theft, like embezzlement or even tax evasion (which is pretty ironic considering what I’m about to tell you).
Either way, it’s all considered a crime of theft and such actions land normal folks like you and me in prison.
But the Social Security Administration? It sure does seem as if they don’t follow the same rules that we do.
In fact, they engage in theft on a daily basis! Social Security steals so much that when you add it all up, they steal more than $378 million dollars every year.
And if you receive Social Security benefits, or will in the future, this impacts you.
