AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

Do members of Congress pay into Social Security?

En español | Since 1984, all members of Congress have paid into Social Security and are eligible for the same benefits that all participants receive. Members elected after 1984 pay into and are covered  by the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) and become vested after five years of full participation.
