What is the Social Security Wage Base?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) wage limit in 2017 is $127,200 and will increase to $128,700 in 2018. As in prior years, there is no limit to the wages subject to the Medicare tax. All covered wages are still subject to the 1.45% tax. Wages paid in excess of $200,000 are subject to an extra 0.9% Medicare tax that will be withheld only from employees’ wages. Employers will not pay the extra tax.

The Social Security (“FICA”) tax rate, which is the combined social security tax rate of 6.2% and the Medicare tax rate of 1.45%, will be 7.65% for 2017 and 2018 up to the social security wage base. The maximum social security tax employees and employers will each pay in 2017 is $7,886.40 and $7,979.40 in 2018, an increase of $93.00.
