(A) There may be other orga nizations which can help you, bu the Illinois Public Aid Cornmis sion, which handles C'd-Age l As slstancc for your state, is the only one we know of. If it is no listed in your phone book, ad dress a letter to that organiza tion at your State Capitol in Springfield and you will be referred to the right office. As you are getting J68.50 from Social Security, don't count too strongly on help from Old-Agi Assistance. But you won't be pu in jail for trying. Good going. (Q) "You state in your column that income from rentals need not be figured in earning restrictions. How about interest from loans? Should it be included in earning restrictions?" F. B. L. (A) There are hvo considera tions: 11 If Ihe interest is from what could be considered a per sonal loan, such monies would not be included in earning re strictions. 2) If your business includes th< loaning of money, then any re turns from such loans in the form of interest would be consideret |as gross earnings and be used a part of the business income from which NET profits are figured And of course your NET income MEN'S SHOE SALE!

(Q) "My husband died in December, 1942. I have visited the Social Security office several times to see if there would be anything for my two young children. They did everything but throw me out on my ear. I remember that my husband had asked for a Social Security card. We operated, together with a number of other people, a family estate farm. Is there any way I can have this checked?" Mrs. Z. N. (A) You no doubt misunder stood what was told you at the Social Security office. Farmers didn't come under Social Securi ty coverage until 1955, so even with a Social Security number he couldn't have been covered bj the program. Also, even if your husband had credits, it is not likely any bene fits svould be due at present. B> now the children would like! be 18 or older, so unless they were disabled, no benefits \voul< be due them. And none would be due you for having them in youi eai-e. There is a possibility tha you may have a widow's bene fits coming at 62. It wouldn' hurt to check on this. We're sorry and wish we coul< make a more encouraging re part, but facts are facts. (Q) "A friend of ours is 68 and was under Social Security for eight years. He now draws a company pension of $60 a month. On two or three occasions he has been told at the Social Security office that he cannot get his Social Security as long as he is receiving the company pension. Is this correct?" V. B. (A) We'll bet our last year' straw hat your friend wasn' refused Socia] Security benefits because he was receiving a com pany pension. No one connectec with the Social Security office would tell him such a story. Have him return to the Socla Security office and learn the rea reason why he is denied monthly benefits. Learn what to do now. Don' wait and learn what you should have done. Send 35 cents in coin (no stamps) for a copy, of IT'S YOUR MONEY Social Security Booklet.
