Dead people and dead numbers but workers not dead


Countless  illegal immigrants who work in The United States of America apparently use authentic Social Security Numbers issued by the U.S. Social Security Administration, or, fraudulent ones… 

Authentic numbers that originally belonged to citizens or legal residents, or else fraudulent ones: often crude counterfeits passed off as Social Security Administration issued numbers.

Employers in these situations — who might be aware or not of the irregularities of the Social Security Numbers of their employees in this peculiar category — deduct ( or some maybe don’t) the required Social Security tax from the paychecks of these employees…  They send the tax monies to the S. S.  Administration, just as they deduct and forward from the paychecks of legitimately employed workers…

The monies contributed into the accounts of illegal immigrants reportedly wind up in dead accounts (sometimes literally because the original owners of the numbers being used by some illegal immigrants in fact might be dead, already.)…  Or, the monies might wind up in what could be called generic dead accounts because the Social Security Administration would have no original record of the fraudulent account numbers to which employee contribution taxes were being deposited by the employer.

Some illegal immigrants, under assumed names, might have been working decade after decade using Social Security Numbers that were not theirs, and a percentage of their earnings through the years would have gone as their pension money into these black holes, it could be said, because they might not ever receive a pension…  Although, they worked for it…

How and why was this particular pension money situation allowed to evolve, whose fault is it and how can it be remedied?

  1. I’m against illegal immigration but believe the federal government allowed it to begin and continue and the problem was compounded with the illegal immigrants working and paying into the Social Security system. Well, it seems that the illegals should be able to get their pension money they paid in if they can prove they worked for it.

  2. I’m not sure that I can answer your questions. However, I can tell you that it is nearly impossible to convince an IRS Agent at audit that you actually did not work somewhere that you have never been. You get to pay additional taxes and penalties for failing to file a “proper” tax return…

    To the tune of ten thousand dollars in my case…
