FICA stands for Federal Insurance Contributions Act. FICA taxes consist of two separate taxes. Social Security (6.2%) and Medicare (1.45%). These taxes are paid on wages earned for services performed. Employers withhold and pay their employees’ share of the FICA taxes and also pay the employer share.
