Page 12 THE HAMMOND TIMES Monday, August 26, 1957 Guide for GIs, Vets By MAJ. THOMAS M. N1AL Recent changes in the Social Security law have left many vets uncertain as to whether they can draw both Veterans Administration (VA) and Social Security disability payments at the same time The answer depends on: 1. Your age. Z. Th« type of VA disability payment you're drawing. Since July 1 certain severely disabled persons have been able to draw Social Security disability payments at age 50. To be eligible you must have worked under Social Security in five out of the 10 years Immediately preceding the disability and 18 out of the 36 months immediately preceding it. However, between the ages of 50 and 65, most other types of disability payments received from the federal government are dedcuted from the Social Security disability payments. These include workmen's compensation, aid to the disabled, VA disability pension and others. · · · BUT VA disability pension, based on non-service connected disability, is not the same as disability compensation, based on a service-connected disability Disability pension will be dedcut- ed from Social Security payments regardless of age. Suppose you were in World War I or H and get $66.15 monthly from the VA for a non-service connected disability. You have also been determined disabled by the Social Security Administration and eligible for Social Security disability payments. Can you draw both in full? No. Can you draw any Social Security payments at all? Yes. You can draw the difference between your VA payments and your entitlement from Social Security. In other words, the total can be no more than Social Security payments alone--but this can mean as much as $42 35 a month to you. Now let's suppose you're in very Much the same situation but that instead of disability pension you're drawing disability compensation for a service-connected illness or Injury. Can you draw both in full? Yes. Does your age make any difference at all? No. · · · IN PLANNING on disability or retirement payments from either the VA or Social Security, remember that each has income limitations. The VA sets no income himt for disability compensation, but to qualify for disability pension the vet must not earn over 51,400 a year if single or $2,700 if he has a dependent. In order to receive all 12 Social Security checks a year, a worker must not earn over $1,200. The Social Security Administration, however, does not count VA payments, private pensions or annuities or most income from rents, interest or investments of any kind as earned income. THE LITTLE WOMAN "OUCH!" ·~~~Dr. George W. Crane" The Worry Clinic Ada M., aged 29, teaches a teen-age Sunday school class. "Dr. Crane, I'm especially interested in the Prodigal Son," Ada began. "Many of our present politicians seem to be like him. For they are glib talkers. "But they keep running us farther into debt. Why is it that people who are smooth talkers often seem unable to balance their budgets? "And the people who know how to save money, seldom are ;ood talkers? "Wouldn't it be wonderful if politicians also were good bookkeepers. "How can we teach children the value of money so they will not squander their parents' wealth or the taxes from us citizens?" Ada has pointed out a common difference between introverts and tttroverts. Herbert Hoover was a classical example of an introvert. He knew how to operate a business or a government according to banking and business rules. He was an efficiency expert.

Ike Returns WASHINGTON (UP)-President Eisenhower returned to the White House Sunday afternoon after an overnight stay at his Gettysburg Pa., farm. The President arrived by car in a heavy ram. He had flown to Gettysburg Saturday! morning. I BUT HE wasn't popular because IB was an introvert. He didn't tiss babies or glad-hand the pubic. He couldn't sway audiences with silver-tongued oratoiy So he went into a decline, though history is proving his wisdom and will douhtless give him a top place among American presidents. Herbert Hoover was thus like the Prodigal Son's older brother. The latter worked dutifully and helped his father earn the wealth which the Prodigal Son then wheedled from his pater. Alas, politicians are too often like that Prodigal Son! They seldom have achieved business success in their own right before they enter politics. No, they have developed the habit of trying to talk their way into elective jobs where the taxpayers then must support them. American statesmen like Senator Byrd, are already seeing the handwriting on the wall. · · · BIBLICAL Daniel was asked to interpret the "Mene, Mcnc, Tekel Upharsm" which was written miraculously on the wall during the drunken feast of King Bel- shazzar. Daniel told Belshazzar it meant his kingdom was finished! American spendthrift politicians m legislative assemblies at both the state and national level are almost as blind as Belshazzar. For 10,000,000 American voters are definitely feebleminded Yet they can still make their "X" on a ballot, even if they are unable to read. And rank politicians of both parties appeal to them with glib promises of ever-increasing gifts, more welfare benefits, etc. Even if the politicians can't deliver, they simply vary their promise at the next election. For those feebleminded soon forget the past and again vote for the glowing promises of the present. You readers of this column are highly intelligent Americans with an I. Q. decidedly above average, for only such people arc likely to read editorial features in newspapers. SO YOU must face up to reality Our Republic is on the skids. Statism and socialism from Washington, DC. are already about 50% in effect And part of the fault lies with parents who fail to teach their kids the meaning of money! Be grateful to the circulation managers of our newspapers who do train 500,000 boys each year in how to earn their own spending money. Would that EVERY child had to serve an internship of at least one full year as a newspaper carrier, just to obtain this invaluable training in our "free enterprise" system. It should be a requirement for political candidates, too! For Uncle Sam is degenerating into a paternalistic papa who is placing more millions every year on an "allowance" under the ruse of welfare aid. \ (Write to Dr. Crane in care of The Hammond Times, enclosing a long 3c stamped, addressed envelope and a dime to cover costs when you send for one of his charts ) v -r--'\ "Trail ***"* f INDIANA UNIVERSITY C A L U M E T C E N T E R 3f01 Indianapolis llvd.
