It’s true there are many inherent problems with Social Security. Say you’re single and die at age 50, all that money you paid in disappears, you can’t leave it to anyone.Wouldn't you rather keep your money now, and use it when it is actually needed? I rather keep my own money instead of pooling it into SS. Everyone should be free to contribute money to what they chose... not be forced to pay for someone else.
I could discuss all day the problems plaguing the system but this is probably not the forum to do so; too many Uber drivers aren’t paying into the system anyway and wouldn’t have the required sense it takes to properly invest for their own future.
