Editor's Note: We suggest that if you are now In or nearing the Social Security age bracket,, you clip this article for reference. * * * Changes in the • social security law signed by President Kennedy on June 30 directly affect about 560,000 persons aged 02 or older, giving them social security benefits for the first time and increasing benefits already payable to 3,700,000 beneficiaries, Earl T. Johnson, district manager of the Waterloo Social Security office said recently. The new law makes the following changes: \. Men now have an option Of retiring at age 62 with Jowei benefits or of waiting until age 65 and collecting higher benefits. . • . ' 2. Widows' benefits 'are increased by about 10 percent. 3. Minimum benefits are raised. 4. Tho amount of work under social security needed -to ge\ benefits is lowered. ... - 5. People who receive only part of their benefits for a year because they earn over $1200 will have a smaller amount deducted. 6. Social security taxes go up slightly beginning January 1, 1962. . . : Under the provisions, men can begin collecting benefits at age 62 'if they choose, just as women have been able to do since 1956. • But workers" who- decide tov benefits before they , ' month than ' they w6uld""7f they waited until' age 65. The sooner a worker takes his benefits after age 62, the greater the reduction in his benefits will be. However, the reductions are figured so that on the average people may expect to receive •about the same amount if they get reduced benefits beginning before age 65, or wait' until they reach 65 and collect higher monthly amounts. Dependent husbands benefits, if taken before age 65, will also be reduced, but dependent widowers and fathers can receive full benefits at age 62, The now amendments raise the nged widow's benefit from the present 75 percent of the husband's retirement benefit to 82.5 percent, a 10 percent increase in individual benefits, beginning with the checks which will be delivered early in September.

Westinghouse © BEECHER t ANE APPLIANCE TERMS "Wildest Trader In Town' 1 TERMS The same increase will be made in the benefits of aged de- * pendent widowers and those of aged parents if there is only one dependent parent surviving. The present minimum is $33; the new minimum payment Will be $40. Under the change, about 2.2 ( million persons will receive increased payments. . Another change lowers the amount of work credit re- •, • quired for old-age and survi- , vors benefits. The new law \ makes payments possible for V a person who has work credit for one calendar quarter for each year after 1950 and up to the year he reaches 65 (62 for a woman). . This me'ans -that a. man who reached 65 or a. woman who reached 02 before 1958 needs credit for only a year and a half of work under social security tp qualify for retirement benefits. Survivors of. workers who died in 1958 .or later and w,Ho were -not eligible for benefits before this change may now be eligible. These people should inquire at their social security office soon. . Another change in the law makes it possible for people eligible for social security benefits to earn up to $1700 and receive more in total earnings and benefits than under the old law. Under both the old and the new law, a beneficiary can earn $1200 a year and receive all of his monthly social security benefits. The old law, though, requires $1 in benefits to be with- • held for each $2 earned from $1200 to $1500 and $1 for each $1 earned over $1500, Under the new law, $1 Is withheld for each $2 earned from $1200 to $1700 and then $1 for each $1 earned over $1700. Thus, under the new law only- $250 in. benefits is deducted when the'benefic- iary earns $1700. during the year, Under, the old law $350 i ..would have been .withheld. , s^*T6*iieipi^nifflc& t iirW'.fcharigeSi • : the^amendment? caJJHJfcr .an increase in social security taxes beginning January 1, 1962. Employees and employers will each pay an additional one-eighth of one-percent on earnings up to $4,800 a year — a total of three and one-eighth percent in social security taxes. Self-employed persons will pay 4.7 percent on net earning} up to $4,800 a year instead or the former 4.5 percent rate. The disability insurance program remains unchanged, Johnson said, except that workers with long-standing disabilities are given another year until June 30, 1902, to file claims for Denefits. Increases in benefits for widows and for those getting min- ' mum benefits will be made automatically before the August :hecks are mailed early in Sep;ember. It will not be necessary, for these people to contact the social security office. Some other people affected by ;he amendments to the law must apply before their benefits can ae started. Among them are older workers who formerly did not nave enough credit for work under social security to receive aenefits, workers between 62 and 05 who wish to retire now with reduced benefits, and dependent widowers or fathers. 42 Pounds Beef Consumed At Leader Conclave Kossuth.
