Do strike benefits count as wages?
If you are on strike, strike benefits paid by your union generally do not count as wages. It does not matter whether or not you are on picket duty during the strike or are subject to call.
Note: If payments other than strike benefits are made to you and you actually perform picket or other strike duties, the payments count for Social Security if they amount to $100 or more in any calendar year.
