Social Security - Receiving Payments And Still Working

If you work in a job that is covered by Social Security, you and your employer must pay the Social Security and Medicare taxes on your earnings even if you are already receiving Social Security benefits. The same is true if you are self-employed. You are still subject to the Social Security and Medicare taxes on your net profit.
