If you are still employed then the SS tax and Medicare is still applied to your wages. FICA taxes are due on wages paid for "services performed as an employee in the United States, regardless of the citizenship or residence of either the employee or the employer." In other words, ANYONE working as an employee in the U.S. must have Social Security and Medicare tax withheld from wages.

You may not have to pay any INCOME tax on your benefits when you file your return but that is different.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
