Is it legal to print social security numbers on payroll check stubs?
Effective January 1, 2008, employers are prohibited from including an employee's Social Security number in its entirety on wage statements. California Labor Code § 226 requires that private employers furnish each employee with an accurate, written, itemized wage statement containing nine particular items. Formerly, one of these items was the employee's Social Security number. Now employers must still print identification numbers on their wage statements, but are permitted to use only the last four digits of the employee's Social Security number or an employee identification number other than a Social Security number. This change applies to both paper and electronic wage statements. The law applies only to the wage statement accompanying a paycheck, but it is recommended that full Social Security numbers be removed from paychecks as well.

Thanks for the feedback!
Federal Insurance Contributions Act ( FICA ) in other words, it is your Social Security Tax.
Yes, it is "legal" to ask for your social security number. And it is legal because it is NOT against the law to do so. What may or may not be legal, in some cases, is to ask s…omeone to provide a social security number as a requirement to have access, for instance, to a benefit to which that same person is entitled by law.
Put it in a flatbed scanner, scan the item, then print. Alternatively, you can take it to any place that makes copies and have one made.

Payroll taxes generally fall into two categories: deductions from an employee's wages and taxes paid by the employer based on the employee's wages. The first kind are taxes t…hat employers are required to withhold from employees' wages, also known as withholding tax, pay-as-you-earn tax(PAYE), or pay-as-you-go tax (PAYG) and often covering advance payment of income tax, social security contributions, and various insurances (e.g., unemployment and disability). The second kind is a tax that is paid from the employer's own funds and that is directly related to employing a worker. These can consist of fixed charges or be proportionally linked to an employee's pay. The charges paid by the employer usually cover the employer's funding of the social security system, and other insurance programs.
First your paycheck with your take home pay (net pay after all deductions) that you have in your hand will not have anything withheld from it because it is issued to you after… all of the necessary taxes and other amounts that the employer is required to withhold from your gross wages, salary, earnings, etc. To determine your amount of the social security and medicare taxes that you will have withheld from your gross wages multiply the amount that is supposed to be subject this tax by 7.65% and that should give you the total SS and medicare tax that may have been withheld from your gross earnings for that pay period. You should get this information from your employer payroll department as they will be the one that would know how much FICA, federal income tax, state income, local taxes, etc they will have to withhold from your hourly pay or gross pay for the pay period.
Federal Withholding Tax
A one-year reduction in Social Security withholding from individuals (not from their employers) was included in the Tax bill that was passed by Congress at the end of 2010. Th…e lost tax income to Social Security will supposedly be paid to the Social Security Trust fund out of general tax revenues.

No you can't get a social secruity number if you ared not a legal citizen.
No, you cannot. If somehow you have two numbers in your name, go to the local SS office and get that corrected. Bring a birth certificate.

In Income Taxes
It should be listed as FICA. Listed next to Federal and State withholding, you'll also see FICA - that is your contribution to Social Security.
You can take an ad out in the paper saying "I denounce123-45-6789!" in bold type and it's perfectly legal. That's the ONLY way in which the question makes any sense to me. I…f you mean that you don't want to participate in the socialsecurity system at all, there is one option I know of: move to anAmish community and become Amish. The Amish are permitted to exemptthemselves from Social Security taxes on religious grounds, becausethe Amish community has a very long history of taking care ofelderly/infirm and destitute members (who therefore don't collectSocial Security benefits either). You've got to really be committedto the belief system and the lifestyle to do this, though, becauseif you try it as a tax dodge both the US and the Amish will take avery dim view of it. The other option is to choose not to participate in social securityby never applying for benefits. I don't think anyone can make you take social security benefits if you don't wantthem. You'll still have to pay the FICA taxes though.
