Do wages paid after the worker's death count as wages?

Excerpted from "Social Security Handbook". See the up-to-date, official Social Security Handbook at ssa.gov.

1334. Do wages paid after the worker's death count as wages?

Wages earned before death and paid to a survivor or the employee's estate after death count as wages if they are paid in the calendar year the worker died.

If the wages are paid after the calendar year that the worker died, they do not count as wages. In addition, they are not subject to FICA contributions.
