Instead, work for Louisiana State University. They give you a choice of paying into social security or not. I didn't pay into it while I worked there, and consequently my SS benefits will be based only on my work elsewhere and lower than they might otherwise be. Luckily I still have enough years worked.
Sweet! I had my forty quarters in twenty years ago. How can I opt out of SS in the private sector?

I assume the don't use modern medicine (no cat scans, no antibiotics, etc)
In other words if I was Amish, I would have died a long time ago. I think I'll
happily continue paying SS, thx.

Actually they do use modern medicine. Because they self insure the community they probably measure the cost against likely cure.

That just kills me. I love the look on the woman's face. It is kind of the same look you get when you tell some women you are retiring early.

Becoming a preacher Gain Social Security Exemption is a easier way to go. But that is not my main reason to become a preacher.
