Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Yes.

Compensation for services performed within the United States as an employee is subject to U.S. social security and medicare tax.

Some countries have a social security agreement with the US. If your country is one of them, you may be able to get credit in your country for the social security you pay in the U.S.
