    I'am 40. I'am willing to give up my social security, based upon the current SS witholdings being placed into a private account. Preferably a 401K type.

    I would prefer to give it up and have what I have paid in returned to me to invest how I see fit.

    They can take my Social Security when they pry it from my cold dead hands.

    My age has nothing to do with it so I didn't vote in the poll.

    The answer is yes regardless.

    How so? You actually end up getting out much more than you put in dollar for dollar.

    Its a crap question based on if personal greed will come into account. I have no personal greed when it comes to my principles. I have never wanted social security nor do I desire it now and if I live to be hundred and have nothing to show for myself I will think the same.

    Btw, I'm 28.
