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.

Social security is basically when the government takes a certain percentage of money from the working generation and gives it to the retired generation. When the working gener…ation become retired, they receive social security. Social security started after the Great Depression, when the government needed to make sure that people had money stored away to live after they stopped working. People get certain amounts of social security depending on how much they and their spouses worked as young people, as well as what jobs and how much they gave to social security. The current problem with social security is that the baby boomers are now becoming retired, and there are more of them than the current generation of working people. There is not enough money to support these retiring people, and unless the government subsidies social security or takes other measures, it is likely to fall apart before people currently in their 30s and 40s become retired. So basically, the idea of how social security works is that you put away money and you will get that money when you retire.
