Re: [tips_and_tricks] Social Security Benefits:
- Are you made of flesh and blood? If so, then hopefully you are a real person. The Social Security account using the name that sounds like yours, is a trust. By law it is a trust. It has a creator, the SSA, it has a trustee, you, it has a beneficiary, the U.S. Gov. and the trust res is the SSC, which when you received it, you were told it was not yours and to keep it in a safe place. The signature act was the offer (sending you the card) and the acceptance(you signing the card). By construct, it is a trust. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, then it's it a duck.

convenience it may afford? Most countries have provisions for
accepting foreigners without them having a passport. A passport just
means that the current US regime will vouch for you to a foreign
government. People who are not foreign to that particular government
can do the same thing. The USA may be respected somewhere still, but
usually a country respects its own citizens more. With most countries,
an invitation to visit from one of their nationals, plus that person's
agreement to be responsible for you while you are there, is enough.
