Legal businesses who employ individuals for work in exchange for money in the USA have a tax ID number that is unique and attached to all finances which is on file by the Inte…rnal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Federal Treasury Department (also known as FMS, Financial Management Services). To be a legal and legitimate employee, an individual employee must have a Social Security Number that is unique and attached to their personal full name, date of birth, city and state of birth and mother's maiden name and is kept on a Master Beneficiary Number file through their lifetime for earnings, taxes, identification, and other references. From each pay check earned for services, work, compensation or tips that an individual receives from their employer it includes a taxation from their gross earning that is set aside into an account for Social Security and Medicare. It is strictly money that comes from the EMPLOYEE only. The taxed funds do not include money from any other source: not the employer, the county, or state. It is from the worker's earned income only. It is not the same as Workers Compensation Fund. A person may have one employer his entire working career or he may have several, dozens, hundreds of different employers until he retires or becomes disabled and unable to do any gainful work. The uniquely identifiable Social Security Number assigned to you, the employee, follows your earning history and the special taxable amounts set aside into the Social Security and Medicare funds are always accruing and kept up to date. Therefore, when you retire from your profession, trade, skilled labor, etc., you notify Social Security Administration and begin to receive back all the moneys you paid into that fund which the Federal government taxed out of your paychecks in monthly benefit checks. So you receive a monthly check, a pension, regularly, from money which YOU EARNED AND SAVED for retirement or should a serious disability arise that forces you to stop working and begin receiving those funds. The funding in Social Security Administration to beneficiaries comes from THEIR paid work. It is not generated by the government itself nor public taxes: the social security administration check I received this month is actually money I saved while I was younger and able to work at my job. This is not to be confused with Social Security Insurance, known as 'SSI'. Social Security INSURANCE recipients receive a monthly stipend that is funded by state and county public taxes. Therefore, a small child can be a recipient of SSI, or a young blind person, or anyone who is ultimately unable to fend for themselves financially and would otherwise be unfed, without a home or the ability to pay for medication and living expenses necessary for survival. Due to our society's economic structure, this social insurance is funded by public taxes and is necessary for the health, safety and welfare of the general public. Without it, those who are unable to have adequate jobs and medical benefits for illness, medicine, hospitalization, childbirth, etc. would be at a total disadvantage, mainly through no fault of their own for whatever reason exists, to survive and would basically resort to desperate crimes to be able to eat, have shelter and live with the rest of the society. However, the beneficiaries of Social Security Administration Retirement are people who are receiving money they earned themselves and are classified different ways. Some are early retirement people, who became disabled and paid enough into their funds to collect it sooner; some are veterans who are retirement age or were injured while serving in the military forces; some are retired that worked for the railroad industry their whole working career, which is a major contributor and factor in our country's economic success. Others are spouses who did not work outside of the home but contributed by raising children and making sure they were educated and fed in a safe home so they could go on and become independent, self sufficient members in society and therefore are entitled to receive a retirement pension of their own from the husband or wife's working fund, because the Federal government and society recognizes that to be the same as being employed full time, even more so. We hope you have a better understanding and answer about how or where the funds come from regarding Social Security Administration's Retirement. It is a good question that many people think about often but is often overlooked when talked about or read in books and newspapers.
It depends on the state where you married and the state where you resided. In a community property state, all property that is acquired during marriage - including retir…ement benefits - is community property and therefore upon legal separation, it is split 50/50.. In a common law state however, each spouse own his/her own income and property, so upon separation - what you earned is still yours.
How much can a person of retirement age withdraw from his retirement funds before their is a penalty?

You may have read that Members of Congress do not pay into Social Security. Well, that's a myth. Prior to 1984, neither Members of Congress nor any other federal civil se…rvice employee paid Social Security taxes. Of course, the were also not eligible to receive Social Security benefits. Members of Congress and other federal employees were instead covered by a separate pension plan called the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). The 1983 amendments to the Social Security Act required federal employees first hired after 1983 to participate in Social Security. These amendments also required all Members of Congress to participate in Social Security as of January 1, 1984, regardless of when they first entered Congress. Because the CSRS was not designed to coordinate with Social Security, Congress directed the development of a new retirement plan for federal workers. The result was the Federal Employees' Retirement System Act of 1986. Members of Congress receive retirement and health benefits under the same plans available to other federal employees. They become vested after five years of full participation. Members elected since 1984 are covered by the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS). Those elected prior to 1984 were covered by the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). In 1984 all members were given the option of remaining with CSRS or switching to FERS. As it is for all other federal employees, congressional retirement is funded through taxes and the participants' contributions. Members of Congress under FERS contribute 1.3 percent of their salary into the FERS retirement plan and pay 6.2 percent of their salary in Social Security taxes. Members of Congress are not eligible for a pension until they reach the age of 50, but only if they've completed 20 years of service. Members are eligible at any age after completing 25 years of service or after they reach the age of 62. Please also note that Member's of Congress have to serve at least 5 years to even receive a pension. The amount of a Congressperson's pension depends on the years of service and the average of the highest 3 years of his or her salary. By law, the starting amount of a Member's retirement annuity may not exceed 80% of his or her final salary. According to the Congressional Research Service, 413 retired Members of Congress were receiving federal pensions based fully or in part on their congressional service as of Oct. 1, 2006. Of this number, 290 had retired under CSRS and were receiving an average annual pension of $60,972. A total of 123 Members had retired with service under both CSRS and FERS or with service under FERS only. Their average annual pension was $35,952 in 2006.

If you are a retiree you should be getting a form 1099, not a W2. They are mailed out the last day of Jan. If you need a copy from a previous year contact UMWA H&R Funds a…t 1-(800) 291-1425.
No, it is not taxable
My husband died 11 years ago from cancer. He had worked in the coal mines for 9 years. Am I eligible for medical and prescription coverage?
Though it depends on the branch of government, (Executive, Judicial, Legislative), each of them figures out what they want, what they need, and what they think they can get ap…proved, then submits a figure for approval. At least that's true for the Executive and Judicial Branches - Congress just votes themselves whatever figure they like. It's a long, drawn out process (trust me), but essentially what happens is that every year, each agency of the government asks each of its departments for their estimate of what they need for a budget for the coming fiscal year (which starts October 1). Everyone submits a figure based on their projections for the next year based on trends and projected needs, with a little padding to be safe. Those figures are sent to the Agency heads, is pared down a bit and sent back, until a figure is reached that the boss feels is a viable one that will be accepted. It's then forwarded to the next level in the chain, reviewed, pared down, sent back, reviewed and pared down some more, etc. Eventually, a compromise figure is reached, and it's forwarded to the branch head (in the Executive Branch, the President), and from there to Congress, where they pick it apart some more. After about 4 months of haggling, the budgets are finally approved and go to Congress for final vote and authorization. Agencies typically ask for a lot more than they think they can get, and always more than they asked for the previous year. By asking for more, they usually wind up with a figure they wanted anyway. President Reagan was a master at the budget game - he always asked for more than he knew Congress would approve, and always wound up getting exactly what he wanted to begin with.
I worked for Gemco and would like to know If I have retirement money due to me.
The Annual Earnings Test for 2011 hasn't been released yet, but budget projections indicate there may be no change from 2010. For the 2010 tax year, the answer depends on your… age. If you've reached full retirement age (65 for people born prior to 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954, gradually increasing to age 67 for people born after 1954), there is no limit to how much you can earn. In the year you reach full retirement age, you can earn $37,680 annually, but for every $3.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from your benefits until the month your reach full retirement age. If you don't reach full retirement age in 2010, you can earn $14,160 per year without incurring a penalty. For every $2.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from benefits.

Assuming you are working in a classified job under the National Bituminous Coal Wage Agreement (NBCWA) and that you worked under the 2002 or earlier NBCWA (or are otherwise no…t considered a "new and inexperienced miner" under the 2007 NBCWA), it depends upon how old you are when you last work under the NBCWA. If you are under age 55, you need 20 years of classified service. If you are at least age 55 but under age 65 when you last work, you only need 10 years. Finally, if you work until age 65, you can retiree with medical benefits after working as few as 5 years.
