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.

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.
