Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. There's no limit for not having to pay into social security. But there's income over which your income is not subject to social security any more. The number changes every year, in 2015 + 2016 it is $118,500. It means only your first 118.500 of earned income (job or self-employment) is subject to social security withholding. Income over this limit is not. And the rule doesn't apply to Medicare withholding.
