Part-time minister opting out with taxes.

(Gadsden, AL )

If a part-time minister opts out of social security taxes via 4361, yet still pays into social security on his regular job, will he still be eligible for SS at retirement?

opting out??
by: Lewis in NC

It is logical to me that if you pay SS taxes on some of your non-clergy, part-time earnings, then the SS Administration would not deny your legal claims to this money when you retire. My question to you, why would you want to opt out of this payment that will help you even more in your future retirement. Hopefully your church is paying into a retirement plan for you, even though you are a part-time minister.
