English term or phrase:Social Security tax (US)
"Bush proposes to allow individuals to invest 2 percentage points of the 12.4% Social Security tax in some sort of private investment account"
Explanation: The exact terminology differs of course from one country to the other. But this is the American equivalent of contribution for social security based on a percentage of income. Translation does not have to match 100% equivalent terminology of the target country. The difference between some European countries and US is that in the Us health insurance is not an integral part of social security
