Why no Social Security setup wizard in Quicken

DotCom Member
There are dozens of discussion threads about entering Social Security income and categorizing the various components. Why is there no wizard in Quicken to authoritatively step us through setting up the deposit, creating subcategories, and handing the government's shameful "round down to the nearest dollar" adjustment? There's no reason we should be discussing this year after year, especially considering how much we pay for an annual subscription.

    Personally, considering that it took me all of 5 minutes to setup a reminder for this, I don't really think there is a lot of value in making a wizard for it that might just cause more problems.

    There usually is like only 2 deductions on social security.  The federal withholding (if any) and medicare.  A paycheck can have many many various deductions and taxes.  So for SS you only need to change a couple amounts once each year on the memorized transactions.
