Social Security - Mandatory

Social Security taxes are withheld from your pay and split in two ways:

  • Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance benefits (OASDI)
  • Medicare

Unlike teachers, all MD Anderson employees pay into this federal program, even if they are also enrolled in the Teacher Retirement System.  The eligibility for the retirement benefits differs between the two programs. However, if you meet these eligibility criteria you will receive a benefit from both plans.

Learn more about Social Security benefits or call the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213.
