TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1956 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGEfHftBI Ms Your Money Additional Earnings Affect Benefits By tt. B. GALLAGHER We get too many letters reading something like this: "I am a woman nearing the age of 65 and have been under Social Security coverage for ten years. If I continue to work past 65, will my monthly benefits be for more than would be the case should I retire at 65? What can I expect in Ihe way of monthly benefits?" (A) Under the new law, starting with the month of November, 1956, a woman becomes eligible for benefits at 62. However, to qualify, she must be the dependent wife of a husband receiving monthly benefits, or have Social Security credits in her own right, or be the widow of a man with enough Sociay Security credits to his account when he died for survivor benefits. All benefits are figured from what would be due the woman at 65; but with the exception of the widow, the amount is reduced for each month the woman lacks of reaching 65. But she must be at least 62 befors becoming eligible for the reduced benefits. There in no reduction in the amount of benefits due the survivor widow, even though she is only 62. The amount of benefits due to a woman at 65 represents the maximum that can be awarded, unless benefits are from her own credits and she should have additional earnings after 65 that would increase the amount of her monthly benefits. The same thing would hold true with a dependent j wife where the husband had I Collecting Goods For Festival at Brighton Nov. 5 BRIGHTON - At Sunday night's meeting of the Methodist Youth Fellowship plans were made for soliciting for canned fruit and vegetables and money donations for the booth festival here Nov. 5.

Surprisingly Low Prices on Used Furniture earned additional credits after 65, making him eligible for a higher monthly benefit. But the amount awarded the survivor widow without additional earnings can never be increased other than under a general Increase by law such as was made in 19M. i Important points are explained by D.
