No, they confirmed in my case that it was theft.
Every year, like clockwork, I order a statement of my social security wages. One, I want to make sure that my earnings are being recorded correctly, and two, and more importantly, I want to make sure that my SSN is not being used by an illegal alien to report wages.
This year, I went onto the SSA website to order my annual statement and received a message stating that due to budget cuts, American workers are no longer going to receive copies of their social security earnings statements. That set me off big time.
Add this to my ever growing list of intolerable acts committed by our federal government. Damn sickening.
