In Hawaii, is Social Security deducted from people's paychecks, the way it is on the mainland?
In the continental USA, when people get their paycheck slip, there is a section called "FICA", where it explains how a certain portion of the money was taken out to contribute to Social Security.
Does this happen in Hawaii? When you get your paycheck, is part of your money taken out for Social Security in the future?

Well, since Hawaii is a part of the United States, of course they follow the same SS guidelines

Yes. And in Alaska, too.

Hawaii is the same as every other state in the deductions from payroll checks.

Hawaii is just another state in the U.S.; it's not a foreign country. All federal taxes, including social security/FICA work the same.

Yes. Since Hawaii is a part of the union, FICA deductions is the same as it is in the mainland.Source(s): Live and work in Hawaii.

Why would you think that Hawaii would be any different than the rest of the US?
Social security is a federal program. It works the same in every state. A portion of your pay is withheld and your employer provides a matching contribution.
The only thing different in pay statements in different states are state specific deductions (and of course how a company chooses to make its pay statements look).
In the end W2s look the same--the only difference is what it says on the bottom line for state and local taxes.
Also, this is a tax/finance question, not a travel question. There is a section for tax questions.

Yes, it is. Hawaii is not excluded from Social Security, neither from entitlement nor from having to pay FICA taxes.

It is a federal system, so yes it happens in Hawaii.

Yes, of course it's the same. Hawaii is a state of the USA; has been for about 60 years now. The laws there about social security deductions are exactly the same as in Maine, Kansas, California, South Carolina, or any other state. Why are you so incredibly stupid?
