With Social Security numbers on a record high, the federal government is on track to claim a $3.8 trillion increase in the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.
Social Security is the government’s major entitlement program.
It provides assistance to low-income Americans and retirees.
Social Security is not tied to the earnings of workers and retirees and can be claimed by workers and their families, as well as by employers.
But the program is subject to the payroll tax, which affects workers who do not file tax returns.
Social security numbers represent a lot of information about a person, making it a source of concern.
And the information is sometimes used to collect other kinds of information.
Social security numbers, for instance, are linked to a person’s address.
The Social Security Administration said last month that its system is being used to track millions of people, including some in states with higher rates of poverty.
Social welfare officials say the number of people receiving benefits is increasing rapidly.
They also say that the number will likely grow, partly because people who have been out of work for a long time will be able to find jobs, and because the number is so low.
That will make it harder for the government to collect the money, which is needed to pay for Social Security.
The Social Security and Medicare programs account for about two-thirds of federal spending.
But some people are seeing the costs of the government taking care of them.
They are using Social Security or Medicare to pay rent, pay for child care and medical bills, pay their mortgage, or pay bills to their ex-partners.
