THURSDAY, JULY 17, ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVEN I«Y Vortr Money ( V • jl /•>, j •' " v - » ; *™ K £•Man Exceeded Earning Restrictions For 1957 ft? O. B (Q) "t WM 65 in April, 1997, and was awarded Social Security benefits for myself and wife of $ t continued to rtcelvn check* through February of this year, at #Weh time they were, stopped on the claim that t exceeded earning restrictions, "My salary and allowed vacation pay for 195? was over $3,000. I received a salary of $100 • month for May, June, August and for September through December. 1 understood that 1 could make as much as $1,200 for" the year; but now I am told that 1 couldn't have earned MOM than $80 a month." • B.B. (A) Here is the simplest way to figure your problem. Even though your monthly checks didn't start until April, earning restrictions for the year had to be tlgtrred Just the same as if they had started with January. With yearly earnings, regard' less of when earned or how much a month, if more than $2,080, no checks would be due for the year UNLESS there wjere months of the year In which you didn't earn over $80. - . J As you earned more than $8t in each of the seven months list ed, and as benefits didn't star! until April, It sifts down to the question of your earnings fot April And «Wy« Most likely ywr vacstwn p«Jr Ms for July; if I 'MM it Wai Kf more than |w, that weuM eftwtoate July. If fllnfts fWf April were ffiOre than ISO, you overdrew -your 1957 benefit account by nine cheeks for 1957. This means that you must return the amount of these nine checks or nine monthly checks will be withheld from later months in which you are entitled tc benefits in order to balance your accoum, Pages 26-? in your It's YOUR MONEY Booklet will straighten you out on this.
