Greetings, Sonrol, and welcome. You asked:

<<If a person retires, before the age of 62, with a service pension from his employeer, is the service pension subject to Social Security Tax?>>

No, pension income is not taxed for Social Security (i.e., FICA) purposes. Only regular income taxes apply to the money you receive from that pension.
