' Goldman Talks on Social Security Act "Social security benefits are not payable for any month in which the beneficiary earns wages of more than $14.99 a month in employment covered by the social security act," John Goldman, manager of the Mason City office of the social security administration, stated on the KGLO forum Monday afternoon. "Income from any other source has no effect on entitlement to old- age and survivors insurance. The individual may operate a business of his own, work on a farm, work for a city, county, state or the federal government, in other words, perform any service not covered by the social security act, and still be entitled to his old age and survivors insurance payment. "We provide a form for the beneficiary to ' use in notifying us that he has earned more than $14.99 a month in employment covered by the social security act. When this form is received benefits are stopped, effective with the first month that more than $14.99 in wages was earned. Must Be Notified "The benefits are not resumed then until we are notified that the beneficiary is no longer earning wages of more than $14.99 a month in employment covered by the social security act. We have no way of knowing what type of work the beneficiary is performing since it is his responsibility to ask if he is in doubt. As a result, employment is sometimes reported that is not under the Social Security act. So, the beneficiary stops his "benefits when he should still be receiving them. "And that is exactly what happened in the case of Mr. Pike. {Naturally, that isn't his real name. We are not permitted to reveal the true names of beneficiaries.) "Mr. Pike reported that he was earning more than $14.99 a month on a job he thought was under social security. So his benefits were stopped and it was over a year before we were notified that he was no longer working for wages of $14.99 a month in employment covered by the sqcial security act. When we were notified we called on Mr. Pike to help him complete the proper form. While visiting .with him a bit we learned he had been employed by a city. Immediately we verified all the facts in the case. To Mr. Pike's pleasant surprise he will be paid for all the months, about 16, when he should have been receiving his old-age and survivors insurance benefits. The total, as I recall, was a little over $184. "Mr. Pike's wife is also receiving benefits so the total accumulated for her would be half, or about $92. Mr. Pike and his wife together being entitled to a total of approximately $276." Under Old-Age Law "Perhaps the principal reason Mr. Pike mistakenly thought his employment with a city was under the federal social security law is that city employment here in Iowa is under the Iowa old-age and survivors insurance system. These 2 laws are commonly confused. However, under the Iowa law (and I quote Sec. 97.45 Definitions) the term 'employer' means the State of Iowa, the counties, municipalities and public school districts therein and all of the political sub-divisions there of and all of their departments and instrumentalities, all hereinafter called political sub-divisions excepting only, those whose em- ployes are now covered by a retirement plan in which such political sub-division participates in financing. "Provided, that such excepted political sub-division may by electron come under the provisions of this chapter in accordance with the regulations prescribed by the commission. "The Iowa old-age survivors insurance system tax on the em- ploye at the present time is 2 per cent, effective Jan. 1, 1949. The federal social security tax remains at 1 per cent for the em- ploye and 1 per cent for the employer. The Iowa old-age and survivors insurance system is administered by the Iowa security commission, their local office is located at 19 3rd St. N. E., Mason City. "The point we wish to emphasize is that any beneficiary should call or write our office if there is the least doubt in his mind about any part of the Social Security law. We are here to answer your questions about Social Security. It is your office. The address is 302 Postoffice Bldg., Mason City, Iowa. The phone number is 428." Sept. 21, 1949 9 Mason City Globe-Gazelte, Mason City, I». I have traveled everywhere, Waikiki and the Arctic. On the camel trails of the. Sahara and through the Khybcr Pass. I have followed the / seaways and the airways to all the familiar places and to the strange ports of call around the world. 7 am a 20th century Marco Polo. I AM A MOVIE FAN I saw the Battle of Hastings, and I was there when King John agreed to the Magna Charta. I was present when the redoubts were stormed at Yorktown and "the world turned upside down". I saw the Constitutional Convention, and I have walked with Lincoln in the shadowed White House grounds. All the past is known to me through my own ears and my own eyes. 7 have lived -forever. I AM A MOVIE FAN Ivanhoe and Micawber and Buffalo Bill are friends of mine. I heard the knight proclaim, his challenge in the Lists of Tcmplestowc. I walked the Dancing Girl Legacy Gets Chicagoan Down Chicago, <U,R5—"Tradin 7 " Christopher Janus, the man who swapped a load of ball bearings for Hitler's 12-ton automobile, returned here from Egypt after acquiring, among a raft of other things, 4 dancing girls. Janus made the trip to Egypt to straighten out the estate of a wealthy uncle. At Alexandria he learned it consisted of c*sh, a 10,000-acre cotton plantation, 20C camels, 4,000 native workers, and 12 dancing girls. His share, after the slow-working Egyptian law machinery got moving, was one-third of the estate, or some 3,300 acres of land and those 4 dancing girls. But more trouble with the government, which was happy to see him come but resented his going forced him to swap his Egyptian cash for the American rights to 10 Egyptian movies. The first "The Sleepless Man," will des ix-iid soon on Chicago movie go ers. As for the dancing girls, th customs troubles getting them ou of the country just wouldn't be worth the effort, he decided. streets of Osage with the grim Oklahoma pioneers. All the great characters of literature have come alive for me, • transmuted from the printed page to men of flesh and blood. I AM A MOVIE FAN I have heard and Avatched Chopin and Mozart, Gershwin and Cole Porter compose their ageless melodies. All the best in music has been brought to my ears. I AM A MOVIE FAN I was with MacArthur on the Battleship Missouri. I attended the sessions o! the United Nations. I was al the Paris Conference. I will be at the next Olympic Games. I am informed of the world oi today, for I am there or- all great occasions and at all great events- I AM A MOVIE FAN No man before me was ever so richly endowed or more fortunate.
