Questions are to be sent to Social Security Office, Kokomo.and should state name and address of sender. Questions and Answers Q. I understand the social security benefit amount was increased inDeeember, 1970. When • will I receive this increase? A. There has been no increase in social security payments. Both the Senate and House of Representatives did pass bills to increase social security but they did not have time to work out the differences in both bills before adjournment. Q. When I first signed up for social security'I was told that I'should file an annual re-, port. What is an annual report and who must file it? A. Any person who received at • least one social security check in 1970 and earned over $1680 in that year must file an annual report of earnings with the Social Security Administration. A person who was 72 in 1970 and earned over $1680 must also file an annual report. Any- . one who did not receive all their social security checks in 1970 and earned under $140 some months or worked less than 45 hours in their business should also file an annual report. This report should be filed with the Social Security Administration. An income tax return is not an annual report for social secur- -ity purposes. Q. I received social security checks in «1970. Must I report this income when. I complete my Federal Tax Returns? A. No. Income from social security checks are not reported as earnings on your state or federal tax returns.
