WHO CAN QUALIFY FOR A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD?
You will find conflicting answers to this important
The official US Government answer is that only
welfare applicants may get a Social Security Number.
Since welfare remains unconstitutional within the
Unites states, the only welfare available is foreign welfare.
Your federal government administers this foreign program.
Social Security came into existence in 1936, three years after the
federal government went bankrupt. The
foreign bankruptcy receivership offers this welfare plan for destitute
people who volunteer to become their permanent wards.
The original intent was to get the ownership of American’s labor
(people don’t like it when I use the word “slave”) to put up as
collateral for the national debt. Those
who survived the Great Depression were grateful for the indentured
servitude that allowed them to survive.
If you persist in your inquiry, you will get many
answers. I’ve collected
many different pamphlets and IRS publications and responses to letters.
These are all unofficial. In
my Appendix G you will learn what the courts think about unofficial
One who relies on a legal interpretation by a government official assumes
the risk that it is in error... it has also been held or said that `the
government could scarcely function if it were bound by its employees
publications of IRS all the way up to revenue rulings are simply guides to
taxpayers and taxpayer relies on them at his peril."
Anyone entering into an arrangement with the government takes the risk of
having accurately ascertained that he who purports to act for the
government stays within the bounds of his authority ... and this is so
even though, as here, the agent himself may have been unaware of the
limitations upon his authority."
The official answers are from the law, regulations,
court cases and official notices.
COURT CASES. In
the last chapter you were introduced to the six court cases that forced
people to get Social Security Numbers.
All six were welfare recipients.
THE LAW. There
is no government requirement for anyone to apply for a number.
SSNs cannot be assigned unless you first apply for socialist
benefits. Section 205(c)(2)(B)(i)
of the Social Security Act
allows the Social Security Administration to assign numbers
individual who is an applicant for or recipient of benefits under any
program financed in whole or in part from Federal funds including any
child on whose behalf such benefits are claimed by another person..."
Read that again.
Do you meet the eligibility requirements for a Social Security
Number? It is available ONLY
to those who claim government funds (Later I will prove that it is not
even your government). Only
those who need benefits can receive a Social Security Number.
Social Security is not a trust fund, nor insurance, nor a pension;
it’s a handout. A Christian
cannot associate with freeloaders per 2nd Thessalonians 3:6
. If you ask them to take
care of you, then you are asking to become a ward of a foreign authority.
TO GET BENEFITS, YOU MUST BECOME A WARD OF A FOREIGN AUTHORITY.
For constitutional reasons, they can give welfare ONLY to these
wards. James Madison said it
“is an absurdity” to state that welfare can be given to ordinary
people. A pauper is someone
who is supported at public expense. As
you’ve seen from the Articles of Confederation, a pauper cannot have
rights. Never did, never
will. You, like Esau, gave up
your birthright for a future bowl of stew.
The only other categories of people who can be given
a SSN are aliens applying for federal citizenship, and students enrolling
in federally funded schools. [even
though the Supreme Court in a 1982 case Plyler v. Doe, 457 US 202
, says that schools cannot require SSNs from students].
Title 20, Code of Federal Regulations, section
for a number. (1) Form SS-5. An
individual needing a social security number may apply for one by filing a
signed Form SS-5 ‘Application for a Social Security Card’, at any
social security office and submitting the required evidence.....
on birth registration document. Where
a parent has requested a social security number for a newborn child as
part of an official birth registration process....
Individuals needing a number.
Voluntarily. The only
way they can tell if an indigent is needy enough to sell all his rights
for a future bowl of stew is to wait until he asks.
Notice that the term “needing” is not the term “wanting.”
This is entirely consistent with the poor laws.
The Paperwork reduction Act (Public Law 96-511)
requires all federal forms
that request information from the public to display an OMB number assigned
by the Office of Management and Budget.
Title 44, US Code, section 3507(f), prohibits government agencies
from collecting any information unless the form displays an OMB number.
To get an OMB number for the form Application
for a Social Security Card, Form SS-5
, the agency that created the application form (Treasury Department, not
the Social Security Administration) had to file a form SF83 with the OMB.
I have a copy of this SF83. The
Standard Form 83’s section 24 is entitled “Respondents obligation to
comply” and then has three boxes to check: “Mandatory”,
“Voluntary”, or “Required to obtain or retain a benefit”.
Their SF83 confirms that the SS-5 Application for a SSN is required
to obtain a benefit and is not mandatory.
And the form SS-5’s “Legal authority for information
collection” is Section 205(c)(2)(B) of the Social Security Act, which
I’ve quoted above.
The Privacy Act (Title 5, US Code, section 552a) in
subsection (e)(3) requires all federal forms that solicit information from
the public to state what law authorizes the solicitation and whether or
not disclosure of the information is mandatory or voluntary.
The Application for a Social Security Card, Form SS-5, has a
Privacy Act statement. It
states in part: “You do not have to give us these facts, but without
them we cannot issue you a Social Security number or card.
Without a number, you could lose Social Security benefits in the
The laws, regulations and court decisions and
official notices are entirely consistent with each other. They conform with history and with the constitution and with
the truth. And they are
entirely consistent with the poor laws.
People v. Shirley, 92 ALR 2d 413, indexed under the
topic Poor Laws:
provisions of the welfare code are to be administered fairly, with due
consideration not only for the needs of applicants but also for the
safeguarding of public funds; if children are not in need, they are not
eligible for assistance regardless of who is paying for their support.”
Taxpayers don't need a Social Security Number.
Those who file a Form 1040 for the first time and don't put down a
TIN will be assigned a TIN by the IRS.
But beware, the payment of a tax not owed creates an obligation to
pay future taxes.
I have yet to confirm that religious objectors who
work for the government can get a temporary ITIN instead of an SSN by
filling out a W7 form. On the
other hand, I've read where ITINs/IRSNs only apply to Amish objectors per
section 1402(g) of the Internal Revenue Code (mentioned in the Legislative
History of Public Law 99-514 section 4), and I've also read Revenue Ruling 85-61 which
makes it seem that only alien limited partners qualify for these alternate
The instructions for ITIN application (Form W7) state
that the form is only for those who do not qualify for a Social Security
Here are some notes that lead me to believe that
Legal Notice has to be served, by a process server, on anyone required to
get a Social Security Number.
US Supreme Court in US v. Batchelder, 442 US 114:
process requires that a person be given fair notice as to what constitutes
illegal conduct, so that he may conform his conduct to the requirements of
Service of notice requiring TINs is acknowledged by
26 CFR 422.6109-1(h):
Nothing contained in the regulations under section 6109 shall limit the
authority of the Internal Revenue Service to obtain taxpayer identifying
numbers required before or after the effective date of this paragraph
after notice is served upon the taxpayer pursuant to section 6001."
Now take a closer look at this section 6001 of the
Internal Revenue Code. It
uses the deceptive terminology "may require" and "or by
Whenever in the judgment of the Secretary it is necessary, he may
require any person, by notice served upon such person or by
regulations, to make such returns, render such statements, or keep
such records, as the Secretary deems sufficient to show whether or not
such person is liable for tax under this title."
Concerning the "or by regulations"
terminology: This is one of the places where the word “or” really
means “and”. If you are
going to claim that some people are served notice in person, while others
are served notice via the publication of regulations, then I demand the
equal protection of the law, equal with those who have been served notice
in person. [In statutes the
word `or' can mean `and' unless preceded by a comma.
Also see Appendix B where `must' can mean `may'].
Concerning the “may require” terminology here is
proof that "may require" really means "must require".
Note how "may" is defined in 34 AmJur, Mandamus, section
however, the word 'may' or the like as used in statutes relating to the
duty of public officers is construed as mandatory, and not merely
permissive, Anno: 6 L.R.A. 162; 12 L.R.A.(NS) 340, See STATUTES (also 25
RCL p. 750), and when such is the case, mandamus may issue to compel the
officer to perform the duty so imposed.
