What is the income threshold for exemption for Medicare deduction from Social Security?
When calculating social security income thresholds are pensions from private companies or the military included?
No, not if this is about the earnings test amount of $14,160 before your SSB are reduced. Pension income is NOT earned income for this purpose. Only the amount of income tha…t you have worked for and earned would be used for the earnings test amount of $14,160.

7.65% from th employee and the employer pays the same amount on the employees behalf. Wages subject to FICA is defined slightly differently than for other purposes, so so…methings may be considered (or ignored) for FICA compared to your "salary". There is an upper limit for the SS portion - about $106,800 in 2009 I believe.
What is the total percentage of income that will be withheld from employee's paycheck for Social Security and Medicare taxes?
A total of 7.65% of your pre-tax income (6.2% for Social Security 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. 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.
That depends on what kind of coverage you elect. Medicare Part A (hospitalization) is paid out of the FICA contributions you made during your working years, so there is no c…ost to you when you retire or become disabled. Medicare Part B (government-administered outpatient, doctors' visits, etc.) costs $110.50 per month in 2010 and 2011, or Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage Plans, run by private insurance companies) costs $110.50 and up. Medicare beneficiaries may choose either Part B or Part C or neither, but not both. Medicare Part D (government-subsidized drug benefit) costs vary from less than $20 per month to $130 per month or more, depending on coverage offered. Many Medicare Advantage Plans provide at least some drug coverage. If you decide to carry Medicare Parts B, C, or D, the monthly premium(s) is/are deducted from your benefit check. Many low-income individuals qualify for government subsidies to pay part or all of Parts B and D coverage.
For most beneficiaries, Medicare Part B for 2010 is $96.40/month (same as 2009).
For most persons, Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance Benefits, or HIB) is free. Medicare Part B (Supplemental Medical Insurance Benefits, or SMIB) premiums are typically ded…ucted from one's Social Security benefits.
If income is earned in the year of full retirement age, the 2008 income threshold is $36,120. If income is earned prior to the year of full retirement age, the 2008 inco…me threshold is $13,560. After those thresholds are reached, social security benefits are reduced. The excess earnings reduction is $1 of Social Security benefits for every $2 of earnings over the lower threshold for people who are not yet in the year they reach full retirement age. In the year a person reaches full retirement age, the excess earnings reduction is $1 of Social Security benefits for every $3 of earnings over the higher threshold. During the month of reaching full retirement age and thereafter, beneficiaries can earn an unlimited amount without a reduction in their Social Security benefits.
I have reached $102,00 and my decuction for the year is $6,324.
For most beneficiaries, Medicare Part B for 2010 is $96.40/month (same as 2009).If you are enrolled in Medicare Part B, your premium is automatically deducted from your social… security check. For 2009, if you make less than $85,000.00 per year, $96.40 will be deducted from your social security check.
