Not true anymore.
For *any* federal employee, whether a GS, Wage Grade or elected official who
entered into federal service after a point when Reagan was in office, all
now pay into the social security system, *except* those who started under
the C.S.R.S. (Civil Service Retirement System) and remain under it. There
are still some fed employees who are under C.S.R.S. and Byrd is (have no
idea who White is). However, all are now under FERS, (Federal Employee
Retirement System). Social security is withheld from their earnings.
I was under the old system, but had a break in service so had the option to
go in under a blended system which was called CSRS offset.

(This is worth reading. It is short and to the point.)
Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during election years.
Our Senators and Congresswomen do not pay into Social Security and,
course, they do not collect from it.
You see, Social Security benefits were not suitable for persons of
rare elevation in society . They felt they should have a special
themselves. So, many years ago they voted in their own benefit plan.
In more recent years, no congressperson has felt the need to change
After all, it is a great plan.
For all practical purposes their plan works like this:
When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until they die.
Except it may increase from time to time for cost of living
For example, Senator Byrd and Congressman White and their wives may
to draw $7,800, 000.00 (that's Seven Million, Eight-Hundred Thousand
Dollars), with their wives drawing $275, 000.00 during the last
This is calculated on an average life span for each of those two
Younger Dignitaries who retire at an early age, will receive much
during the rest of their lives.
Their cost for this excellent plan is $0.00. NADA..! ZILCH...
This little perk they voted for themselves is free to them. You and
up the tab for this plan . The funds for this fine retirement plan
directly from the General Funds;
" OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK "!
>>From our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay (or have
into, every payday until we retire (which amount is matched by our
employer). We can expect to get an average of $1,000 per month after
Or, in other words, we would have to collect our average of $1,000
benefits for 68 years and one (1) month to equal Senator! Bill
Social Security could be very good if only one small change were
That change would be to:
Jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan from under the Senators and
Congressmen. Put them into the Social Security plan with the rest of
Then sit back.....
And see how fast they would fix it.
If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be
maybe good changes will evolve.
How many people CAN you send this to?
How many people WILL you send this to ?
