a. Totals do not necessarily equal the sum of rounded components. Employment taxes depend on tax rates and, for the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance Trust Funds, wage bases (taxable maximums). (Beginning in 1994, no wage base applies to Medicare's Hospital Insurance program.) Employer and employee contributions differ by estimated amounts of employee tax overpayments and by employee tax on tips.
b. Beginning in July 1973, aged ineligibles may voluntarily enroll for HI.
c. Includes premiums paid on behalf of eligibles by state governments under "buy-in" arrangements.
