Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Members of certain religious groups (including the Amish and Mennonites) may be exempt from paying Social Security taxes. To become exempt, they must:
To request an exemption from Social Security taxes, get Form 4029—Application for Exemption From Social Security and Medicare Taxes and Waiver of Benefits from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Then, file the form with the Social Security Administration (address is on the form).
IRS will either approve or disapprove the application after Social Security determines whether the applicant’s religious sect meets the requirements for exemption.
Let me know if that answered your question.
Please ask for clarification.What exactly do you expect after filing form 4029?
It does not "wipe out" - your earning record is still listed with the SSA on your account.But by filing form 4029 and assuming it is approved - you are waiving your rights to all benefits - I specifically highlighted that clause above - so if you are thinking to continue benefits - that would not be correct expectations.
I am sorry that the answer doesn't meet your expectations.
Let me know if I may be any further help?It might be possible to revoke your 4029 election - but it would not be a simple procedure.
