Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) Taxes

There are two parts to the FICA taxes: Medicare and Social Security. Medicare Taxes fund the Medicare hospital insurance system. Social Security taxes fund the federal Social Security system for retirement, survivors, and disability insurance.

Questions about Medicare and Social Security withholding amounts can be directed to your payroll provider or tax professional.
