SOCIAL SECURITY TAX WITHHOLDING DEFERRAL:
Starting mid month pay 15 September through December 2020 military members pay will reflect the first paycheck that does not have Social Security payroll taxes withheld.
If you look at the example LES pictured below you will see "FICA-SOC SECURITY" which accounts for 6.2% of your base pay. (ex. 2634.60 x 0.062 = 163.35).

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
During the months of September 2020- December 2020 you will see an increase in pay from the addition of taxes not being withheld.
During the months of January 2021- April 2021 you will see DOUBLE Social Security Taxes being withheld to make up for the prior months.

HOW TO PREPARE?
During the months of September 2020- December 2020 you can set aside the amount you typically get taxed in a savings account. This will help balance out the months of January 2021- April 2021 when you start receiving less per month (because of paying double Social Security payroll taxes).

HOW TO CALCULATE:
Base Pay x 0.062 = Amount You Set Aside

Please see our updated Remote Learning Category of Assistance.
Let me give further guidance as well:
The purpose of the category is to relieve stress on those military families who have been thrust into a “Hybrid combination of Resident Schooling and Stay at home Virtual Schooling” or if given an option by the sanctioned and or affiliated school district to enroll in “Full Time Virtual Schooling” and must pay out of pocket for supplies and materials that the sanctioned and or affiliated school cannot supply.

Parents who Home School their children but are not sanctioned or affiliated with a school district do not qualify for this assistance.

To apply for this assistant we would need a letter from the sanctioned or affiliated school district stating that the student is in fact enrolled in the school, what option type the student is being educated under (Hybrid or Full Virtual), a full school supply list and or a syllabus of required technology items needed, of those required items and supplies, please have the school breakdown which items the school provides and which items the parents must provide. AER can assist with the items the parents must provide.

Please contact our office directly to apply and or receive further guidance. Each case will be based on it’s own merits as to whether it’s processed as a loan, grant or a combination of loan/grant.
