SS ACCOUNTS: Here are some undisputed facts and the letter of the law: The Federal Social Security

Act (Pub. Law 74-271, August 14,1935, 49 Stat. 620; as amended) is codified at 42 U.S.C. §§301.1399. The first mention of the social security number in a law or regulation is a Bureau of Internal Revenue regulation dated November 5, 1936 where an identifying number, called an account number was assigned to employees covered under the Act. T.D. 4704, 1 Fed. Reg. 1741, Nov. 7, 1936; 26 C.F.R. Part 401 (1st ed., 1939). This regulation was issued pursuant to Section 807(b) of the Social Security Act of 1935 and was not a mandatory requirement but simply a directory.

Today, most people are under the impression that a social security number is required for more than just social security purposes, this is not the case and never has been. This impression came, in part, from the fact that in 1943, the Civil Service Commission decided that there should be a numerical identification system for all Federal employees and proposed to the bureau of the budget that the use of the social security number be authorized for this purpose. This led to the issuance of Executive Order 9397, which provides, in part as follows:

WHEREAS certain Federal agencies from time to time require in the administration of their activities a system of numerical identification of accounts on individual persons; and;

WHEREAS it is desirable in the interest of economy and orderly administration that the Federal Government move towards the use of a single, unduplicated numerical identification system of accounts and avoid the unnecessary establishment of additional systems;

NOW, THEREFORE, it is hereby ordered as follows:

1. Hereinafter any Federal department, establishment, or agency shall, whenever the head thereof finds it advisable to establish a new system of permanent account numbers pertaining to individual persons, utilize exclusively the Social Security Act account numbers.

Now let us move up to 1974, with the increasing demands being placed on individuals to furnish a social security number in circumstances when use of the number is not required by Federal Law or regulation, the Congress in 1974 passed the Privacy Act of 1974 (Pub. Law 93-579, 88 Stat. 1896; as amended). Section 7 of Pub. Law 93-579 provides:

(a)(1) It shall be unlawful for any Federal, State. Or local governmental agency to deny to any right, benefit, or privilege provided by law because of such individual s refusal to disclose his social security account number.


The Social Security Act does not require a person to have a Social Security number to live and work in the United States, nor does it require an SSN simply for the purpose of having one. However, if someone works without an SSN, we cannot properly credit the earning for the work performed. SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

The people are being forced against their will to provide something that is not supported by any law, and in addition to that, they are being threaten of being denied an equal right!

A private employer cannot lawfully discriminate against the people of the United States and the people and Citizens of the several States, who assert their right to work and the law protects them could become criminally liable, see 18 U.S.C. §242 and 42 U.S.C. §1983:

Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution and laws of the Unites States shall be fined under this title of imprisoned not more than one year, or both;

42 USC § further provides that a violators shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress.

INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE FACTS. 1. Social Security Numbers can only be issued to federal "employees" for use only in the performance of their official duties. See 20 CFR §422.104.

2. The Social Security Number is the property of the government and not you. Therefore, it can't be "yours" unless you are a public officer on official business. See 20 CFR §422.103(d).

3. The SSN is issued to the federal "public officer" and not to the man, and then only while he is an agent of the federal government.

4. Anyone who uses a Social Security Number who is NOT a federal employee acting on official commercial, government business is guilty of impersonating a federal "employee", which is a crime. See 18 U.S.C. §912.

5. You can only use it in connection with a "public purpose", and not a private purpose. It is illegal and a crime to use or abuse the SSN for a private or personal use. This is called embezzlement or conversion, and it is a criminal violation of 18 U.S.C. §641 and 18 U.S.C. §654.

6. Everything connected to the SSN becomes "public property" because the SSN can only be used in connection with a "public office" or federal employment.

7. The private man was never issued an SSN if he is not acting as a federal "employee". Therefore, he can honestly answer "NO" in response to the question of whether he was ever issued an SSN if he is not acting as a federal "employee" or agent.

USC Title 15 Chapter 1 Section 17 clearly states: "The labor of a

human being is not a commodity or article of commerce."
