Provisions Affecting Coverage of Employment or Earnings
These provisions extend or reduce the categories of workers or the amount of earnings covered under the Social Security system. For the provisions listed below, we provide estimates of the financial effect on the OASDI program over the long-range period (the next 75 years) and for the 75th year. In addition, we provide detailed single year tables.
All estimates are based on the intermediate assumptions described in the 2008 Trustees Report. Choose the type of estimates (summary or detailed) from the list of provisions.
|Number||Table and graph selection|
|F1||Cover newly hired State and local government employees beginning in 2009.|
|F2||Provide for OASDI payroll tax coverage of employer provided group health insurance cost, starting in 2010. Specifically, any cost toward such group health insurance borne by employees would cease to be deductible, and the cost borne by employers would now be allocated to employees as if it had been wages, for the purpose of payroll tax (and later, benefit) calculations. Both employee and employer OASDI payroll taxes would be affected by this proposal.|
|F3||Beginning in 2009, exempt individuals with more than 180 quarters of coverage from the OASDI payroll tax.|
