AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

I'm starting a new job. Will my wages be subject to the FICA tax?

En español | Unless you work for an employer that does not take part in Social Security, such as certain state government agencies and churches, you will pay the Federal Insurance Contributions Act ("FICA") tax (also known as the payroll tax) on your income up to a cap, $117,000 for 2014.
