    Plus, you never really truly own it, anyway. Don't believe me? Stop paying your property taxes and see what happens.

    Not in all cases. If you are 65 years old or older, and have had a permanent Florida residence for at least 25 years, you may be entitled to a 100% exemption.

    Yeah, but that's because we live in Florida. Most other states, they keep sticking it in your ass until you die.

    Im happy paying SS tax, I’d rather not live in a third world country.
    Plus unlike other taxes, it’s a tax you get back:couch:

    May get back. It's not a solvent program.

    A heart felt thanks for the $1375 SSI check, a supplement to my investments.

    Well nothing’s a sure thing. But I’ve been hearing that all my life, heck my grandfather and father heard it all their life. I’m guessing it’s safe to say they would fix it before they dissolve it. But ya never know.

    IF your HOUSEHOLD income is less than $20,000
    and
    IF your home is worth less than $250,000

    Pretty damn limited.

    Depends on how old you are. For some they will call it a welfare program and tell you you are a mooch as a reason not to pay. It really is a ripoff.

    Sure some live long enough to beat the system but I know many people who died before collecting.

    " It is a shame they never got to collect a penny SS after all they paid in." - I have said to people more times than I care to remember.

    You know many that died before 62? That stinks. But yeah, I recently had a friend die at 65, he only got three years worth. If you wait until max age I’m sure the odds are worse.

    The CBO has been predicting it for years. https://www.cbo.gov/publication/56516

    A ~20% cut is on it's way.

    There's also 100% exemption for Veterans that rate 100% disabled.

    I get a $5K exemption for 10% disability.

    They need to quit moving the age to collect further and further out. I'll never catch it. I remember when I got my SS number the 'age of retirement' was MUCH lower than it is now.

    I have seen this a bunch in real life. There are notable exceptions. I know 30 year olds that work hard , have money and are doing very well. I know others living with their parents that have no job, want their parents to buy them a guitar and whine that life is not fair.
