As the law stands today, paying into Social Security is not optional. It is mandatory. You cannot get out of paying it no matter how many papers you file.

Whether it will or won't be around 20 or 30 years from now is a matter of opinion, since as of right now no one has a crystal ball to see into the future and find out. If President Idiot has his way, people may eventually have the option of putting it into personal accounts so that they can lose it on their own. But as of today, you're stuck with it.
