Thread: How do freelancers retire?

The SSA does not require that you accept the benefits, but the IRS requires that you pay for them:
Even if you did not have a SSN, you would still be required to pay FICA. You'd just not be able to collect from the SSA when you retire.
This is why the Amish don't have to pay:
As for canceling your SSN, I have no idea where you read that, but the SSA will not cancel an SSN:
In extenuating circumstances, they may be willing to delete your application, but they will not delete your SSN.
Damn all that info with only 10 minutes of searching. Now who would have thought that the SSA website would have information on Social Security? That's a pretty big jump to make I guess.
