Opting out
by: Pstr. R Rizzi, Farmington, NH

Reasons for opting out of SSI must be because you have a religious objection to the government taking SSI money from your pastoral salary and collecting on it.
I opted out and put money into my roth IRA.

Please consult a good CPA on the issue but if you choose to opt out, do it quickly because there is a time limit that you are in your position to do so. <><
