Important information to know!

Military members- Effective for the September mid-month pay, DFAS will temporarily defer the withholding of your 6.2% social security tax if your monthly rate of basic pay is less than $8,666.66. If your monthly rate of basic pay is at or above this threshold, your social security tax withholding will not be affected by the temporary deferral. Military members can use their August or prior LES as a good reference for their typical social security tax amount. The social security tax is labeled as "FICA-SOC SECURITY" on the LES and is calculated as 6.2% of basic pay.

Military members are not eligible to opt-out of the deferral if their social security wages fall within the stated limits. The deferral will happen automatically.

Per IRS guidance, collection of the deferred tax will be taken from your wages between January 1 and April 30, 2021. Additional information on the collection process will be provided in the future.

More information is available at the link.
