Re: Social Security if you coast last few years

This is a very helpful thread. I am on the tail end of my carreer and working 'overseas' also. Good information. Thanks all.

Re: Social Security if you coast last few years

Sandman, do you only have to contribute your 6.2%, or would you have to contribute your 6.2% + your employers 6.2% + medicare (for which you personally get nothing) = 1.45% x 2 for a total of roughly 15.3%
You are right Bongo2... my total contribution would be 7.65% including medicare. Employer would cover the other 7.65%.
