Anthony, manager of the El P*aso Social Security Ad- minstration Field Office, called attention today to two entirely new types of benefits which were ndried to the Social Security Act by the 1950 amendments. The dependent husband, or the dependent widower, of a woman both'fully'and.'curently insured," at the time of her entitiemfent lo.oid- agc and survivors insurance benefits', or death, , may qualify for benefits. The definition of "fully insured" or "currently insured" have, been expanded to afford added prolcc- j tion to groups now being brought under the 'system. A person who attains age 65 or tiies before July 1, 1954, may be f u l l y insured by reason of having at least six quarters of coverage (earned either before or after 1950). · A person is currently insured, if he has at least six quarters of coverage in the 13-qnarter periods ending with ( 1 ) the quarter of dentil (21 the quarter in which the individual became entitled to old- age and survivors insurance under the amendments, or (3) the quarter in which ho or she became entitled to a primary insurance benefit under the pVovisiona of the previous law. A quarter of coverage is still a calendar quarter in which $50 or more is credited to an individual's social security wage Hccuunt. except that for Keif-em ployed persons, the amount needed for a quarter of coverage will be S100. s Arnicas Club Has Anniversary The Las Amigas n.-xtsnsion club members and their families celebrated their first Anniversary Sunday, April 29. with a picnic supper held at the home or Mr. and Mrs. Ellas Lopp-z.
