Your benefit in retirement is determined by your earnings history. I have not seen an analysis, but the increased SS and income taxes you pay may be balanced by your additional benefit in retirement. But at age 27, that benefit is so small, who knows if it will matter.

I suspect this matters most if you happen to become disabled and collect under SS disability.

Every cash business out there is potentially a gray market business. All have this question. I don't know if there is a good answer.
