And even though you’re in a relationship, when you die, all that money that’s been sucked out of your paycheck for Social Security stays in the hands of the government.It doesn’t go to a beneficiary of your choosing — you won’t even get so much as a funeral benefit as you would if you were survived by a spouse.
