The Social Security Administration released their final numbers.
They continue to raise the new limit that you must pay Social Security/ Self employment tax on. The maximum base increases to $132,900 in 2019 (from $128,400 in 2018). This will result in additional FICA tax of $558 for the self employed if your earnings are above this level.
Also, most retirees will receive a 2.8% increase in benefits starting January of 2019.
