Social Security Question?

edited December 1969 in Social
Please excuse me if I seem a bit ignorant or naive here since I've yet to be employed for the first time.

I wanted to know am I required to pay into the Social Security fund? On a related note, are Pensions and Social Security the equate to the same thing? I mean that if I have a Pension fund can I skip out on Social Security instead?

I've heard of Pension plans that allow you to pay in whatever you want if you want to at all. I'm not sure if this is true or not since I've only heard it mentioned once. If I can on my first job, I want to skip Social Security and do my planning by myself. I shouldn't be forced into it.
