EAD - Social Security Tax
 
A friend of mine told me that we do not have to pay Social Security Tax while working on EAD. Does anybody know if this is true ?

That would be a huge plus in case its true.

that applies only if you are on F1 visa (still considered a student), so you dont owe social security and medicare.

F1->OPT (Employment Authorization)
 
If you were a student on F1, and if you just got an OPT (Employment Authorization), you do not have to pay Social Security tax. Once you switch to H1, you have to pay the SS tax.

Your friend may have confused 485 based EAD with F1 OPT based EAD. On F1, you do not pay SS or Medicare. On AOS based EAD, you do need to pay SS/Medicare taxes.
