SS RMD

I will soon be 70 1/2 and I will have no need for my Social Securty RMD income.
Is it possible, like I think to be true for an IRA RMD, that I can
request a direct SS payment to a recognized charity. Then, I will have no IRS SS income to report?
If the answer SS is "Yes", then I assume that my total charitable RMD contributions (SS & IRA) are limited to a net $100k?

You cannot donate your SS benefit directly to charity to avoid recognizing it as income. Only IRA RMDs are eligible for Qualified Charitable Donations.
