Unfortunately it's NOT that

Unfortunately it's NOT that simple. 6331(a) allows for the levy of:

    "Levy may be made upon the accrued salary or wages of any officer, employee, or elected official, of the United States..."

By having the Social Security number, you ARE an officer, employee, or elected official of the US, also known as "federal Personnel". It is situations like this that te Govt. thrives on...presumption, and implication. For example, "citrus fruits includes oranges, lemons, and limes" is an apple a "citrus fruit"? NO, but a tangerine is, and so is a grapefruit, because they "are in the same general class".

See USC Title 26, 7701 for the meaning of including:

    (c) Includes and including
    The terms “includes” and “including” when used in a definition contained in this title shall not be deemed to exclude other things otherwise within the meaning of the term defined.

USC Title 5, 552(a)

    (13) the term “Federal personnel” means officers and employees of the Government of the United States, members of the uniformed services (including members of the Reserve Components), individuals entitled to receive immediate or deferred retirement benefits under any retirement program of the Government of the United States (including survivor benefits).

Here we see that Officers, employees, individuals entitled to Social Security, and members of the uniformed service are all in the same category. This is because Social Security is a PRIVILEGE, not mandatory, and shows status as a UNITED STATES person.
