Clark QUESTION — I heard that a disabled person no longer has to wait 6 months to start getting social security checks. Since my husband became severely disabled last month and immediately applied for • monthly payments, does this mean his checks will start right away? ANSWER — No. While it is true that the waiting period is no longer 6 months, it hasn't been eliminated. Congress reduced the waiting period by 1 month to 5 months. This means the 1st month for which a check can be paid is the 6th month after the disabling condition began instead of the 7th month. QUESTION - I am supposed to receive both social security retirement checks, and the new supplemental security income checks. How will I know which is which? ANSWER — Your social security retirement checks will be green, like the usual Federal government checks. The supplemental security income checks will be a gold color. QUESTION — For several years I have received notices that my retirement amount has been increased because of my work. I am now 69 years old and still working. Will I get any extra credit since I never have received any social security payments? ANSWER - Yes. The notices of increases you have received in past years 'refers to increases due you because of your continued earning. You will also receive additional credits called "delayed retirement credits" for each month from age 65 up to the time you start receiving benefits or to age 72 whichever comes first. This extra increase will amount to 1 per cent ( l/ z of 1 per cent per month) for each year. No credit can be given for any month before January 1971. QUESTION -1 hear people talk about Medicare Part A benefits and Medicare Part B benefits. What is the difference? ANSWER — Part A covers hospital care, skilled nursing care and some home health care. There is no premium payable for Part A services. Part B covers doctors' services, home health care, outpatient hospital care, ambulance service, medical equipment and supplies. There is a monthly premium payable for Part B. QUESTION — I'm 74, and I've already applied for supplemental security income payments. Every now and then I do odd jobs for people, but my earnings never go over $50 a month. Will these earnings have any effect on my payments? ANSWER - No. REgardless of age you can earn up to $65 a month without it affecting your supplemental security income payment. •Girls— (Continued from Page 11) Crestland, : 12.3; 220 Dash- Linda Bruning, Willow, :28.2; 440 Dash — Linda Bruning.

"1 O Wedn«*day, April 17, 1974 * "* QUESTION — I'll be retiring soon, and I want to apply for monthly social security payments for my disabled daughter. She's 25 and has been completely disabled since birth. What information should J bring along to apply for payments for her? ANSWER - You'll need proof of her age and her relationship to you — both of these are usually shown on a birth certificate. You'll also need to identify a medical source from whom social security can get information about your daughter's medical condition. QUESTION — I'm going to college and getting social security student checks. Next semester, I'll have to cut down by class attendance to part time and also get a part-time job. Will my checks continue if I keep my earnings below $2,400 for the year? ANSWER'— No. Although your earnings would not be high enough to stop your monthly checks, your part-time class attendance could. To get monthly student checks, you must be going to college full time. QUESTION - I'm totally blind, and I'm getting a monthly disability payment of $175 from social security. I'm single, and 1 live alone. Can I get any help under the Federal supplemental security income program that just started? ANSWER — Although your income is too high for you to get the basic Federal payment, you may be eligible for benefits since the State of Iowa has a supplemental benefit program for the blind. You should check with us to find out if you are eligible. Organize to Aid the City's 111 By JACQUELYN BOUCHER MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — A severely crippled young mother cannot care for her 2-year-old son alone. A disabled elderly couple needs help keeping house. A sick, 80-year -old widow lives by herself without friends or family nearby. Each of these people needs a friend, companion, nurse, cook, housekeeper, and they get it through the Manchester Homemaker Service Inc., a nonprofit agency. "There are a lot of old, lonely and sick people in this area," said Mrs. Hyalie Hurwitz, director of the service, which tries to keep families together during stressful periods and reduce institutionalization of the sick and elderly. She said the need to remain in one's own home despite failing health or family crisis is strong. "They'll do anything not to surrender their precious independence," she said. "Many, especially the elderly, feel that going to a hospital or nursing home means the end," she said. Even though the volunteer homemakers provide only a few hours of help each week, the recipients are grateful. "We're so much a part of their lives," said Pam Broderick, of Manchester, a homemaker health aide for a year. She said her job had deepened her understanding of the ill and increased her affection for the elderly. She also said she couldn't help becoming attached to patients despite a detachment the homemakers are supposed to maintain. Pam's first case involved a mother who was recovering from an emtional breakdown. "The.kids all had scarlet fever and the' house was upside down," she recalled. Oran Hiltz, a blind diabetic amputee, has been a client of the homemaker service for almost 10 years: He is visited twice a week for three hours by Janet Rice. She arrives at 9 a.m., does Hiltz's shopping, laundry and housekeeping, prepares his lunch and gives him physical therapy on his leg. She leaves at noori. The 25 women on the agency's staff range in age from 20 to 72. The most important qualities, according to Mrs. Hurwitz, are compassion and understanding.
