Hey, it's working fine for me! I get a direct deposit on the 2d Wednesday of every month and I started taking the money the very moment I was qualified. Sure, I get a lesser amount but at least I get something.
The problem is that the money was invested in T bills and now it's time to cash them in. Unfortunately, the US Treasury doesn't have enough money to do that. In effect, and in many cases actual, the money was stolen.
I paid the money in for 43 years and I want it back. Every single dime!
