Lyndon Johnson was the first president to borrow from the Social Security Trust Fund. He needed to pay for the Vietnam War. Next was Ronald Reagan and the military buildup of the 1980s.

Ask at your local churches/mosques/synagues - often they provide support for non-government social services.

Ask at local schools for a student project - students often are asked to prove volunteer work and fund-raising efforts when applying for university admission and would want to help by running bake/cake sales, car wash projects, etc.

I am waiting for my new direct express card and I need to know if my social security check will be in there as soon as I get my card?

Are you saying you are just signing up for a SS card? If so, you are not eligible for benefits until you apply for social security. And even then, you must have worked and contributed sufficient funds to quality for a monthly payment from the government. It's not clear from your question as to what your status is.

Who made Social Security benefits taxable?

Q3. Which political party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A3. The taxation of Social Security began in 1984 following passage of a set of Amendments in 1983, which were signed into law by President Reagan in April 1983. These amendments passed the Congress in 1983 on an overwhelmingly bi-partisan vote.
The basic rule put in place was that up to 50% of Social Security benefits could be added to taxable income, if the taxpayer's total income exceeded certain thresholds.

The taxation of benefits was a proposal which came from the Greenspan Commission appointed by President Reagan and chaired by Alan Greenspan (who went on to later become the Chairman of the Federal Reserve).
The full text of the Greenspan Commission report is available on our website.
President's Reagan's signing statement for the 1983 Amendments can also be found on our website.
A detailed explanation of the provisions of the 1983 law is also available on the website.

Is it true that the Senate voted to steal $150 Billion dollars from social Security


It happened on the 30th of October 2015.
3am 30/10/15, while America was sleeping, the senate voted to steal $150 billion dollars from the Social Security Trust Fund. Just remember, a vote to raid social security in the middle of the night in a desperate attempt to perpetuate an unsustainable spending addiction isn't a sight of strength, it is a sign of weakness." If ever there were a reason to PRIVATIZE social security and Medicare, this is it. Congress has broken their promise, and ripped us seniors off. Fire the Government. Senator Rand Paul filibustered until 2am this morning, an exercise in futility, where the Senate joined with the House to "borrow from peter to pay Paul," raid social security and pay down a myriad of other bureaucratic debts. The debt ceiling was raised as high as the sky until 2017.
Social Security 150 billion raided by Congress today

Is it true that Social security checks are going to be renamed to Federal benefit checks

It's true that Social Security retirement payments are classified as "federal benefit payments." The word "benefits" has been applied to Social Security retirement payments since the Social Security program was enacted in the 1930s. The terminology is also not unique to Social Security, as the phrase "federal benefit payments" applies to a broad class of payments made to (or on behalf of) individuals under federal government programs - everything from Social Security Disability Insurance to Medicare to farm subsidies are considered "federal benefit payments." The fact that workers themselves contribute much of the money that goes into the Social Security retirement fund doesn't affect its classification as a benefit. They benefit the person who cashes the check.
