Pay starts when hired as a recruit. You start at like $42K a year with a four-year college degree after the academy, not counting extra jobs. No paying into social security.

Not APD.
WTF?
Please explain further.

How does a state position manage to avoid federal "tax"?
The only way I can understand that is if the PD pay it for the officers?
probably the same way railroad employees dont...they have their own system setup

They must have opted out before that choice was closed in the early 80s. Kind of like Galveston County, TX, which Neal Boortz talks about sometimes.

There are a number of groups of workers who are exempted from having to pay Social Security taxes:

Federal employees hired before 1984 who elected to continue to participate in the federal retirement program instead of receiving part of their retirement under Social Security coverage.
State or local government workers (police officers, firefighters, and teachers) hired before March 31, 1986 and participating in their employers' alternative retirement system.
Ministers may choose whether or not they will participate in the Social Security program.
Self-employed workers with annual net earnings below $400.
Election workers earning $1,000 or less a year.
Household workers earning less than $1,500 per year.
Minor children with earnings from household work but for whom household work is not their principal occupation.
College students working under Federal Work Study programs, graduate students receiving stipends while working as teaching assistants, research assistants, or on fellowships, and most postdoctoral researchers.
Individuals who are members of certain religious groups such as the Amish and Mennonites.

Some teachers, even newly hired ones, don't pay into social security because the whole school district has opted out.
