Are Reserve Contributions and Social Security Paycheck Deductions essentially the same thing?

The government wants to make sure people have money for when they retire. They know most people won’t save enough money for retirement on their own. As such, the government takes a portion of your paycheck and saves it for you in Social Security.

This is why your HOA collects money each month for items to be replaced in the future.
