TMFPixy responded to a question with the following:

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.

I would just add that Medicare tax still applies (at least it does to my military pension). It is approximately 1/2%.
