AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

I am collecting retirement benefits but continuing to work. Do I still have to pay FICA taxes on my earnings?

En español | Yes. For as many years as you continue to work, FICA taxes will be collected on your earnings, even if you are already receiving Social Security retirement benefits.
