Social Security Cards Explained

Social Security Cards Explained


Americans love their independence… a nation of pioneers living out from under the eye of government … (except for all the government). As such, unlike many other countries, Americans don’t have a national ID card… …and even the idea of creating one is a political hot topic every election cycle. The results are always the same: we don’t need no ID card. But suspiciously, US citizens do already have this: a card with a unique number that many places will ask for to prove who you are. This is the Social Security card and number… …and it has become a quasi ID / unique password to identify citizens… …though that was never its intended use. For Americans, keeping this number secret is super important… because it’s the key to the government and banks to identifying you as you… … and losing control of it is the worst kind of identity theft that can happen. So how did Americans end up with a national ID number… … that isn’t one and a card terribly unfit to identify? It all started in the great depression of long long ago… … when the government created the social security program, … … a kind of mandatory pension: Citizens would be required to pay in during… … their working lives and withdraw in their retirement. The idea being that even if past-you didn’t save… … for the sunset years of future-you, the eventually old current you… … would still have something to live on. Now if you want to think of social security as a benefit… … the government provides or as a bank account that’s yours … … is… controversial, but either way this number was created … … to track what you put in and what you take out. Now, because this was just one government program… related only to your working life, you only needed to apply… …for a social security card when you actually started working. But over time, that changed and the younger you are, …the more likely you’ve had one from the moment of your birth… …despite babies’ worthlessness as child laborers. So why? Well it goes back to Americans’ having no national identity card… …with a national number, which makes it harder for institutions… … to keep track of people over their lives. With hundreds of millions of citizens, names and birthdays aren’t unique, people move, people marry, people change names. And if you’re trying to keep track of everyone, as say the United States Tax department might want to do, it can be a real problem, particularly in the pre-computer days. “Hey, wait a minute, look, at *this* number just lying around,” the tax department said. “It’s not supposed to be used as an ID number,” said the social security department. “There are security reasons you shouldn’t–” “Yoink!” Thus the tax department piggy-backed off of the work the social security department did assigning working adults a number, which made tracking taxes easier … and they highly encouraged parents to get a social security number… … for their children by tying it to a tax discount. Crazily, counting children for tax rebates used to run on the honor system. The US Tax Department told people: 1. We will give you a discount on your taxes for each child you have. And: 2. Write down your number of children, … …please be honest, we don’t have a way to check. Which was just asking, nay, begging people to lie. Which they did, birthing on paper millions of phantom children. But after requiring each kid to have a social security… … account number connected to a birth certificate… … before the parents could get the tax discount, … … all those phantoms faded away. This turned the social security number into a unique number… … that all citizens had right from the start, … and that made it easy for lots of other places like banks … … and schools and companies and landlords … … to also piggy back on the number as an easy way… … to keep track of people without having to come up… … with their own systems and to be able to exchange information… … about people between institutions. This is super useful for institutions, so, … …the desire of Americans to not have a national identity card led, … …somewhat inevitably, … …to the nearest thing available being used as a substitute… … which ended up being worse because the social security number… … was never designed to be used this way in the long, long ago. And you can tell because it has no security built into it. Ok, so there’s this neat trick that most ID numbers use… …where they can check themselves to see if they’re invalid. The simplest way is to have the last couple digits… … match the sum of the others. All kinds of ID cards and bar codes do this because it makes it impossible… … to enter an incorrect number in a computer, … … and makes it harder for fraudsters to guess valid numbers. This is why if you try to buy something online by guessing… … a credit card number, the website knows it’s invalid… … before you even click buy. But because the Social Security number started life… … in the long, long ago, it’s just a number… … with no self-checking security built in. Worse, if you’re born pre-2011 it’s not that hard to just guess … …most of the number: the first three digits are the state where the … parents applied for the card and the last four digits just count up in order, … … and the middle digits follow a regular pattern. So you can take your number, subtract one and that’s a valid number… … of someone who was probably born in the same hospital… … as you around the same time. Thus a fraudster who knows your time and location of birth… … can probably get the first five digits by just looking them up on a chart. Institutions ask for the last four digits as a code to identify you as you… … which means it’s not that hard to put together your number… … from a security leak anywhere or just by connecting a few puzzle pieces. The physical card itself is no help either: … just a literal piece of cardboard, … … depending on when it was issued, not even laminated. The social security department used to print… … ‘not to be used for identification’ on the cards… … as a futile attempt to stop institutions for asking for them as IDs, … …because there’s nothing identifying a person on the card. But eventually they gave up and removed these words… … because, unlike passports or driver’s licenses, … … you can assume all Americans will have this one card. All this means your social security card and number… … probably have less security than your library card, … …while being vastly more important. So it fails at being a secure number, … … it fails at being a good ID card, … … but at least it is universal* which is why people use it. Oh hello, asterisk, my old friend. No, of course not, this program isn’t actually universal: …not everyone has a social security account number, … …and not everyone pays into the program. If you want to get out of paying you’ll just need to: First: Never have received any social security benefits… … and give up your rights to getting any in the future. Which seems fair. In addition you must also: Be a member of a religion opposed to the idea of social security. Usually because it’s a kind of insurance, and insurance is a kind of gambling. That’s harder, but you could always just start… … your own religion if you were really serious about avoiding taxes. But your new religion must also: Provide for its elderly and dependent members. Which means you have to re-create a social security program of sorts … …in your religion (while also being against social security). But if creating a contradictory religion doesn’t daunt you… Lastly, it must have existed continuously since 1950. Which is a giveaway that this exception was written pretty much exclusively… for the Amish and Mennonites, … … and kills dead your plans unless you’re willing … … to undergo a serious change in lifestyle. It doesn’t stop there: …keep digging and you’ll find all sorts of other weird, weird exceptions: … including some railroad workers, or firefighters, or police, … … or teachers (but only in Chicago). Usually these are groups that in the long long ago… … were able to get out of the program at its creation date. So nothing’s ever straight forward. And that’s the deal with this social security card: … containing a national number for citizens that don’t want one, … … on an identification card, that fails at identification, … … given to all citizens — except when it isn’t — … …for a program that’s universal, except when it’s not.

  1. I have a question….. Can you identify the First, Last and Middle name on the social security card? (Jake Hamilton Connor) Would Hamilton be the last name or Connor? Someone help

  2. so the social security is credit account I have Medicare does it mean the government has been taking out thousand on behalf my name.

  3. I work at a public library, and in my state public workers and civil servants don't pay into social security, but a completely different system. And if I decide to leave all my public work behind me I can get all the money I paid into it back.

  4. That’s funny as hell because if you read the book “AN ECONOMIC INTERPRETATION OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES BY Charles A Beard 1913” you would know how to get rid of your social security number and by 2020 THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS DEAD SO NO TAXES!

  5. I also recall reading that these are NOT always unique, even among living people, not to mention the deceased. So it fails even to uniquely identify a person. How couldn't it? There are only 1 billion possible numbers and 327 million people in the country.

  6. The story of SSN 078-05-1120: https://www.ssa.gov/history/ssn/misused.html Tl;dr: it was a real number belonging to a real person that was used in "sample" cards included in men's wallets sold in a popular chain of department stores, and so it was widely reused, not always fraudulently.

  7. I remember I had to go through a hassle of changing the number my bank had after I got a new number after becoming a citizen rather than a green card holder

  8. Your birth and Marriage Certificates as a Global and National Fraud
    when you are born you have entered a Crime scene
    as you are sold for money to the banks :
    They make money out of you from a bond ($$$)
    created from your birth certificate
    (signed coerced) by your mother (Executrix):
    1) Every Birth Certificate is converted into a bond
    and then is passed on to the New York Stock Exchange
    and The Vatican Bank as A stock Bond = Money = Value :
    2) Every Birth Certificate has a Value
    and a serial number that can be checked for Value
    3) You Come under Admiralty law (maritime 1871)
    (three yellow fringes of the american flag):
    Your mothers womb was the cargo in the Ship and you were the B(e)rth:
    4) Every Birth is to be registered as a Corporate commodity (dead)
    in each country by UCC law with is a Roman law
    dating back to 1302 (involable Global Estate Trust).
    5) Your NAME IN CAPITOL LETTERS is your deceived conformance
    to the corporate slave system.

    From cradle to grave, from birth certificate to tomb stone
    capital letters–… Capitis Diminutio Maxima
    Deceived into Consent

    You see there is no such thing as the United States Government (alive).
    Title 28 USC 3002 Section 15A
    In reality there are no Governments. There are Corporations (Fictions)
    such as the Federal Reserve Inc., and the United States Inc.,
    which in fact are private corporations.
    The United States Inc., is just a slave management company.
    Guess what that makes (YOU) ? If you said property, you are correct!
    You are Human Capital.

    "hidden in plain site"
    you need a magnifier and a check from your checkbook
    take a close look at the signature line examine it.
    notice its (not) a line at all It’s a row of microprint
    endlessly repeating “authorizing signature”.
    Why would that verbiage have to be there, and why would it have to be obscured?
    To keep the victims from knowing the truth —
    that all their assets in banks have been unlawfully converted.
    all bank accounts belonging to “JOHN QUINCY PUBLIC” (YOU)
    are in fact accounts belonging to a Puerto Rican ESTATE Trust
    owned and operated by agencies of the IMF.

    Imagine that Burger King International went bankrupt
    and it called all the local franchise owners together
    and they all agreed to name their customers (YOU) as sureties
    for their corporate debts. That is what happened in America in 1933 (FDR). The victims weren’t told a word about this.

    The Spirit and the bride say. "Come."

  9. Happy Birthday / Welcome to America #333-52-6975, get ready to pay taxes no matter what.
    Yea, good work on that whole independent thing, glad we can have this flimsy crap instead of a robust system that isn't easily abused/scammed.

  10. Here's the big kicker: In the military, your social security number becomes your "serial number" and is embossed on your dog tag. Which the enemy, if you're captured, can use to steal your identity.
    How f**king stupid is that.

  11. Europe: we have something that works, easy to understand, and with little to no drawbacks!
    MURRICA: YES BUT FREEDOM
    (And thus, social security number, the imperial system, etc.)

  12. No proper gun regulation, no proper identification system, no proper business regulation system. no proper legislation checking body…………how the FUCK did YOU manage to become a superpower! FUCKING HOW!?

  13. Immigrants would kill for that stupid number lol
    Lemme tell you, living in the US w/o a SSN and having a regular job/life is straight up impossible.

  14. What a fucking mess. This is just like the American health care system–a haphazard patchwork of solutions from the 1930s and 1940s that are now used for totally different purposes, and that never got fixed as the system got worse and worse. In American health care, it was simple–a severe worker shortage in the 1940s made employers desperate. They couldn't increase wages to attract more people (due to price controls put in place by the government) so they provided health insurance instead. And that's how this stupid country ended up with employer-provided health insurance. And now it's nearly impossible trying to fix this gargantuan problem. Sigh…

  15. The religion must have existed before 1950? Well you did make a religion about how to become the pope so we’ll just reform Catholicism

  16. I wonder if it's possible to refuse to use the Social Security Card for identification.

    Like, you get a drivers license when you are 16 years old. Then when you hit 18 you immediatly get a State ID using your Driver's License as identification, and whenever you need to proove yourself you use your State ID, refusing to give your SSN.

  17. 6:28
    Lord Saddler: *creates religion in spain,
    *gets showed in golden PTAs coins in spainland that help funds the war efforts of his religion.

  18. Hang on, when Americans buy alcohol, they have to bring their passport instead of an id? Someone pls explain im european

  19. You know, I always wondered what social security cards were for and why they were so important, because honestly, I don't think my mom knows. She just always told me that it was important, but never why.

    And school sure as heck didn't teach me what it is, what it is for, or why it is so important, so, here I am.

    Learning about something so important on YouTube, like it's a fun fact.

  20. The older I get the more I learn that USA is a lot of things, most of which are negative traits. Old fashioned and foolish are some big ones. SMH.

There is a Supreme Being and not one motion in Jefferson for it in law or letter. Sub-limits are bad arithmetic!

  23. Due to the insecure nature of SSNs, most major web services (YouTube, Facebook, etc.) will censor any SSN you enter, eg. •••-••-•••• (not censored on my screen). This usually also works with credit card numbers. Try it out!

    The “Certificate of Birth” has a STATE Seal and Registrars Signature,

    The Registrar is the court of Probate and Probate deals with
    Estates of the DEAD, hence the legal fiction name (NAME or Name)

    This speech by JFK should be memorialized by a bronze plaque
    on each entryway of every educational institution /government building:

    The President and the Press excerpt:
    by John F Kennedy Address before
    the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1961
    two years before the assassination on November 22, 1963

    The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society;
    and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies,
    to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.
    We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment
    of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.
    Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society
    by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today,
    there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation
    if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger
    that an announced need for increased security will be seized
    upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits
    of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit
    to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration,
    whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military,
    should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news,
    to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press
    and the public the facts they deserve to know.

    The New World Order is made up of various controlling components,
    Political, Military, Economic, Scientific, Cultural and Religious.
    These entities are the outer core of what you and I see
    and understand today while the inner core is concealed through
    the inner workings of occult societies of secrets. Their goal is
    a One World Government with a one world leader, their New Adam
    known as the Antichrist. Today, the United States plays a major role,
    holding onto a veneer of Christianity and a core of pure Gnostic
    Luciferianism

  26. Roni Gilbert did something that a General could not do.

    Paula Flowers 🌸 did something that a General could not do.

    Mi Lin Jin Ping, MD did something that a General could not do.

    The State of VIRGINIA is completely militarily defeated world wide. They will never see it again. They murdered those women to prevent lawful marriage.

    I have LASIK Vision. It is Medically approved and you cannot get LASIK Vision as a mental patient in any region on earth.

  27. Exempt if religion existed before 1950? That's violation of my first amendment right. What if the prophecy of the flying spaghetti monster wasn't revealed until 2005? What if I claim to be a splinter group of amish (electric internet with more variable clothing)? The religion existed, the splinter is part of said religion (well, denomination really).

  28. Social security is ponzy scheme that in essence has more people taking out than paying in making it utterly useless in the long term for old people. I mean why bother getting paid $90 for a month and then don’t even have the security to get a certainty of it. Because if you think we have money to pay you, just look at the National Debt, and skyrocketing suicide rates for young adults.

  29. I am a 17 year old Texas born-raised half white half Filipino who's never left the country say for 3 times (2 of witch where I was an infant and one of witch I was 9 turning 10) to visit the Philippines.
    why the fuck would a national identity card be a political issue people disagree on…?!

  30. Security features started in 1983 after printing on banknote vs card stock. Prior to this it didn't matter if you laminated. Problem! It was easier to tell everyone your not allowed too. VS after 1983 which is clearly marked on back of card.
    .
    I'm fighting with agency right now because policy says they can't accept laminated cards and I don't have 4 wks. to get replacement.
    .
    It's 44 yrs. old so doubt I cam remove laminate without damage to card.

  31. Far too much to get into, needless to say it is a terrible system. By the way, asking somebody for their social security number for ID in any way is flatly illegal. And always has been. Had I known what was going on with the social security system when I first got mine I never would have gotten it. Under the Social Security Act, the only people required to get it are people coming into the country.

    The same amount of money put into any decent retirement account makes you thousands of dollars more a month.

  32. All true, but the social security card identifies you to the bank-owned corporation known as the United States of America. Yes, not a nation but a corporate entity owned and run by the Federal Reserve. You are in reality an indentured servant of the system. The card is your contract to pay your masters whatever they demand in tribute for them allowing you to live (supposedly free). What a joke!!

  33. Joe Generic, if you’re out there this guy revealed your social security ID now I have your life savings if you want it back PM me
