    but I don't think we have to loan Social Security.

    If we do loan it, we have to buy non marketable treasury bonds and that is how the government gets the money.  Social Security's bonds are as good as any bond that is in a 401k or IRA.

    We would be better off to park it in a safe vault, than let the government touch it.

    It was set up for the bonds to be non marketable, so they couldn't be sold, then defaulted on.
