HOW DOES THE UNIVERSAL SAVINGS ACCOUNT WORK?
The Universal Savings Account (USA) is a savings account set up by every worker before said worker receives his or her first payroll check. Each USA is 100% owned by the taxpayer and can’t be reached by the government or the courts. The USA can be set up at the worker’s bank or brokerage house or another private institution accredited by the US Government.

There will be no fees to set up the account and no fees to maintain the account or any fees regarding the investment program where the workers choose to place their money.
Each financial institution that provides the USA Accounts to their customers will also provide a smartphone app specifically to keep track of their account. The app will also provide all the necessary information to make a wise decision on which index fund to invest. For example; the younger you are the more aggressive the fund can be.
The IRS funds the individual USA accounts. The worker’s employers will withhold 15% of the workers pay and transfer those funds to the IRS who in turn will automatically deposit said funds into worker’s individual account.
The income deposited into the USA Account is tax-deferred until it is withdrawn.
From time to time Congress will determine or reset the balance threshold that would trigger when workers can begin withdrawing an income from their individual USA account. In no case will the threshold be above the age of 65.
The US Government will guarantee a bottom threshold of retirement income starting at the age of 65 that will not exceed what the benefits would allow from the current Social Security System.
Ownership of account posthumously. As the owner of your USA account, you can instruct the principal balance of your account, upon your death, to be rolled over to an heirs’ USA account without paying any taxes. Congress can set limits on the use of these funds. For instance, to be used only for catastrophic incidents, private education, down payment on a home, health/auto/property insurance premiums etc.
