American acting legend Jeff Bridges has finally come out and said what every other American was thinking: Illegal immigrants should not be receiving social security.
It’s widely known in the United States that the Social Security Administration rakes in billions of dollars in charges that it can’t attach to a name – because they don’t know who paid it!
Whenever businesses send off W-2s with Social Security numbers that don’t match anyone on federal record, the Social Security Administration must then file those papers in an Earnings Suspense File, where the documents will sit until an individual can prove that the reported wages are theirs – thus granting that individual the ability to collect retirement benefits later down the road.
That Earnings Suspense File is reported to contain tax documents dating all the way back to 1937, and those documents are tied to expenses paid on about $1.3 trillion in wages.
While a number of those files can be blamed on individuals who changed their names after marriage, and others are likely just individuals who filed incorrectly.
Since 2014 the Social Security Administration has actually be able to track down these lost individuals and return 171 million tax documents to their rightful proprietors.
Yet there remains about 340 million tax documents unclaimed and recorded by the Social Security Administration, as opposed to the 270 million they held just ten years ago.
Government officials believe illegal immigrants are to blame for a very large chunk of these numbers, with the boom in migration mushrooming the number of unclaimed or unmatched tax documents held by the Social Security Administration.
And hard-working American taxpayers don’t want to be robbed anymore.
