You can continue to work in a job subject to the Old Age tax and watt for your benefits until you decide tt> retire.

Nothing was changed, except that now his checks came from the City instead of from a private corporation. And — though he never noticed it — the one per cent Social Security tax uo longer was deducted. If Joe had 1 gone immediately to the nearest Social Security field office, he could have begun draw- Ing $'24.49 a month old age Insurance, while still working for the subway at full pay. As prices rose during the war, that almost 25% raise .would have been very welcome. Hut Joe didn't know, Ihougn the RSI3 tried hard to inform him and his fellows. So he never filed until he quit work in January, 1945. For 54 months he lost $24.49 a month —a total of $1322.4(3. It's gone for- I ever. 1 Nor Is that all that he tost.

IA calendar quarter Is January through March, April through June, July through September, or October through December.) 3. If you are a wife, and your husband Is drawing lu-Hcflls. when you become G5 you are entitled to half as much as your husband receives (A wife, for this juirpo-sn, must have borne a child to the •A-age-earner or have been married to him at least three years before the month in which he applied "»' benefits.) 4. If you are widowed and your lusband was insured when he died, •ou will be entitled to benelits when you become U5. Hut if you lave a child you are supporting. regardless of your age, you get benefits for yourself and the child until t becomes 18 or is married. Thun the benefits suspend until you become 05. 5. It a woman has earned benefits of her own they belong to her, when she "retires" after 05, whether or not she needs them. B'Jt ] i! her benefits come from her lute husband's insurance, she will lose them it she remarries. 7. You cnn work for pay and still draw benefits legally, by working for yourself or for an employe-'.' not .subject to the Old Age tax. It is almost impossible to last 1 by filing your claim ns soon a.i you become G5, even though you keep on working. The SSB wi!l compute your benefit rale at once. Then, when you leave covered employment, it will compute the rate again Also, it will figure the iicne- 111 rate as of every March 31 be- uvren your 05th birthday and your retirement. You will get the highest benefit rate thus computed. If your salary increases after 05 you get the benefit of the increase. If your wages drop olf after 05, you will be paid the higher rate earned before the cut.' if you retire sick, or injured, or if you are careless about filing when you retire, the claim staked at 05 will protect you against such losses as I have described. There is only one way you might lose by continuing to work after filing a claim at C5. That would be if you had been married less than three years, in which case you could collect for your wife when she became 65.
