[My SS card was issued in 1969 and, indeed, the Not for Identification is not on it. Neither does it appear on my children’s, but there is something strange.
The information provided on the back of my card exactly as it’s written: Contact any social security office immediately if you: lose your card—to get a duplicate card.; change your name—to get a card in your new name.; are unable to work because of a severe disability expected to last a year or more.; are 62 or older—to ask about retirement checks.; are within 2 or 3 months of age 65, even if you don’t plan to retire—to sign up for Medicare. [Then at the very bottom] Department of Health and Human Services, Social Security Administration Form OA-702 (5-80)
Here’s what’s on my children’s, again exactly as it’s written: (Date: 1995) This card is the official verification of your Social Security number. Please sign it right away. Keep it in a safe place. Improper use of this card or number by anyone is punishable by fine, imprisonment or both. This card belongs to the Social Security Administration and you must return it if we ask for it. If you find a card that isn’t yours, please return it to: Social Security Administration, P.O. Box 17087, Baltimore, MD 21235. For any other Social Security business/information, contact your local Social Security office. If you write to the above address for any business other than returning a found card, it will take longer for us to answer your letter. [At the bottom] Social Security Administration Form SSA—3000 (4-95)
On my youngest: (Date: 2000) All is the same except: The address is P. O .Box 33008, Baltimore, MD 21290-3008, and the form is Form SSA—3000 (6-99)
I find that the information on my children’s cards is more authoritative sounding than on mine. It’s almost like more control is being put into play. Of course, that could be just me. Read the following. It’s very interesting.]
I checked my SS Card and it says “Not For Identification”! Of course it’s 43 years old and still the original one I was issued!
Just in case some of you didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.
Social Security [SS] Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.
An old Social Security card with the “NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION” message.
Our Social Security: Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month, [we] find that we are being taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government.
You may be interested in the following:
Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent Trust Fund and put it into the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it! Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away! And, the worst part about it is… uninformed citizens believe it!
The most recent tax break that the puppet administration is pushing is, in fact, a reduction in the FICA tax that workers pay, which goes to pay Social Security, which is unfunded. Why not cut some other tax rather than the FICA tax?
IF enough people SEE this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve.
