SSA logo: link to Social Security Online home933. How is work that is not in the exercise of the ministry treated for Social Security purposes?

Work you perform that is not in the “exercise of the ministry or duties required by a religious order” is treated the same as the work of any other employee. Your services are covered or excluded from Social Security on the same basis as any other employee for the religious order.
