Most states no longer penalize Social Security recipients with unemployment offsets, but five states -- Illinois, Louisiana, South Dakota, Utah and Virginia -- currently reduc…e weekly unemployment benefits by 50% of your prorated monthly Social Security check. South Dakota and Virginia have repealed their offset laws, but still have a provision allowing them to deduct Social Security benefits from unemployment checks when state unemployment funds fall below a pre-determined threshold. The long recession and high unemployment rate triggered the offset in both states.
You not only can get unemployment benefits while on Social Security (provided you qualify for each separately) but you can receive SS even while you are working, under certain… conditions. Yes, you can receive both unemployment and Social Security at the same time, as long as you have qualified for both of them.
Yes, but Illinois is one of 4 states that offset your unemployment benefits by a part of your Social Security
The specific amount withheld should be shown on your payment stub or direct deposit receipt, and is labeled FICA. A total of 7.65% of your pre-tax income (6.2% for Social Se…curity and 1.45% for Medicare Hospital benefits) is withheld from each paycheck until you reach the current earnings cap of $106,800. There is no earnings cap for the 1.45% Medicare Hospitalization contribution, so that continues to be withheld regardless of your income. Your employer pays a matching amount from company funds, bringing the total contribution on your behalf to 15.3% of the first $106,800 of salary. If you earn less than the maximum, you can easily calculate your total annual contribution by multilplying your base salary x .0765. For example: A person who earns $35,000 in 2010 will contribute $2,677.50 toward future retirement benefits, and his or her company would match that contribution for a total of $5,355.
In the US, unemployment insurance is completely separate from social security taxes. Employers pay federal (FUTA) unemployment insurance for each employee based on the… employee's earnings. Most employers also pay state (SUI) unemployment insurance. Unemployment insurance is an employer expense. The employee does not pay into the unemployment insurance fund. In the US, employement taxes are funded as follows: Employee Pays (Withholding) Federal Income Tax FICA-Social Security FICA-Medicare State Income Tax State Disability Insurance Employer Pays (Tax Expense) FICA-Social Security (matches employee withholding) FICA-Medicare (matches employee withholding) Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) Employment Training Tax (ETT) NOTE: this breakdown is for California. State employment taxes may differ in other states.
The state can't take overpayment of unemployment benefits from a Federal tax refund. Some states have provisions to deduct such from the state tax refund of their state. Most …states will take a percentage of future unemployment benefits to pay off unemployment compensation overpayment.
No, because they are 2 very distinctive programs, you can receive both at the same time, without reducing the unemployment benefit, as long as you qualify for them separately.…
Absolutely. As long as you qualify for each of them individually. Three states currently will offset your unemployment benefits by your Social Security (not the other way arou…nd) and they are Illinois, Virginia, and Utah.
Almost everybody, either through deductions on their paycheck or through self-employment tax.
For most beneficiaries, Medicare Part B for 2010 is $96.40/month (same as 2009).
You may be an independnet contractor, not an actual employee. If you are, the company/employer doe sNOT have to provide much for you plius YOU MUST pay many things, incl the …7.65% of the 15.3% FICA tax hey normally would.
Taxes deducted from an employee's earnings to finance social security and medicare benefits are called FICA taxes?
YES that is correct. FICA stands for "Federal Insurance Contributions Act." It's the tax withheld from your salary or self-employment income that funds the Social Security and… Medicare programs.The (OASDI) Old Age Survivor and Disability Insurance (FICA) (social security and Medicare taxes) all mean the same tax for social security benefits (SSB or SSDI). All mean the same thing.

Yes, as long as you qualify under both programs.
If you were a employee and had a employer you can use the below information for your situation. Firms and workers file Form SS-8 to request a determination of the status of a …worker for purposes of federal employment taxes and income tax withholding. A Form SS-8 determination may be requested only in order to resolve federal tax matters. If Form SS-8 is submitted for a tax year for which the statute of limitations on the tax return has expired, a determination letter will not be issued. The statute of limitations expires 3 years from the due date of the tax return or the date filed, whichever is later. The IRS does not issue a determination letter for proposed transactions or on hypothetical situations. We may, however, issue an information letter when it is considered appropriate. The above information come from the Form SS-8 page 4 and it is available by going to the IRS gov web site and using the search box SS-8 You can click on the below related link
