You're the idiot who brought up a supposed right to survivorship in a failed attempt to prove social security is an earned benefit, when it's clearly not.None of this information contained in the below post has any basis in fact or remotely relates to social security and the rights of survivorship.
Good information but useless in refuting the point of survivorship as it relates to Social Security.
You check may be based on the amount of income you earned over your working career, but it doesn't mean it's earned income.
And as such it can be reduced or eliminated at any time without legal recourse.
If you owned your benefits with the right to survivorship as you claim, then it could only be taken away through court proceedings, rather than Congress simply passing a bill.
