Will My Earnings Be Subject To Social Security Taxes If I Retire And Go Back To Work For My Employer?

May 20 2017 - 7:21am

I will retire with a state funded retirement system, SURS. We do not pay into social security. My questions is when i retire i am planning on going back to work for my same employer. i will not be required to pay into SURS because i will be collecting my pension. Since they are an eligible SURS employer and have that fica/futa exemption will i have to pay social security tax?

Thank you!

Hi,

I'm sorry, but I can't answer your question. In some cases, re-employment with the same employer can result in the employee's earnings being subject to Social Security taxes, but it depends on the specific IRS regulations involved.
