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

928. What are the types of family employment covered by Social Security?

The family employment exclusion does not apply to work you perform for either:

  1. A corporation or an association classifiable as a corporation. This is true even though the relationship set out in §926(A), (B), (C), or (D) exists between you and the person or persons controlling the corporation; or

  2. A partnership, unless the relationship in §926(A) exists between you and each of the partners.

Suze Orman's Advice to Delay Social Security Benefits Until Age 70 is Too Broad
