Won't Receive Pensions Galesbufg Reaister^Aail, Galesbura, 111, Thufsday, June 21, 1973 17 By GERARD M, BRANNON WASHINGTON (NUA) We have seen that pensloft). plans are not the safest things in the world,.but probably nearly 60 par cent of workers Third In a Series will in fine future retire with some kind of employer pension plan to bolster up their social security. WHY WILL ONLY SOME WORKERS GET PENSION BENEFITS? Apart from the problems of vesting that wfe have talked about, the big problem is that at any one ttone only a little ADVERTISEMENT ' Lose Ugly Fat Start losing weight today OR MONEY BACK.

Seminary. Side Drugs,, Mail Orctert filled. 1170 over M per cent of the workers are covered by pension plans. If a fellow toaes his job befow ho gets a vested claim, to a pension, there Is a pretty good chance that there won't too a pension plian in his next job. A lot of the lack of coverage occurs in srraaiM firms with an uncertain future. As we saw, the bug companies don't pay up (fund) their pension costs Immediately but the promise of a big company to put up the money 'later is pretty good (not perfect, but pretty good). For most small companies, the promise to pub up funds later probably 'doesn't cut much ice with the workers and full funding is too expensive. Another circumstance is with a lot of low-ineoime workers, their workers lare not so interested in savings (and pensions are really savings). Tjhey want their wages pretty much in cash 'to meet current expenses and, to educate kids. Retirement will have to wait. WHAT ABOUT SELF* EMPLOYED PEOPLE? In,the 1960s there was some extension of tihe pension benefit under a law that lets a selfnemployed person set up a pensdon plan which covered (himself. The Congress put a few extna llmWs on these plans because It Was expected' that they would be used mostly by professional people whoi didn't have many employes. In tots of these leases, it is practically a matter of a fellow setting up a retirement plan only for himself. He might try to get a deduction for a* much as he wanted to save. Since 'then, the professionals have outfoxed the Congress by devising ways to form "professional corporations" so they can have pension plans without One special limits. They are "employes" of their own corporations. WHAT ABOUT WORKERS NOT UNDER A PLAN? The administration is willing to <Uhirow in the towel. Now they say that the way out Is just to keep on expanding'-pension coverage. In the President's program, he proposes to relax the limits on plans that setf-mrployed people can set up for themselves and to create a new deduction for employes whose employer doesn't have a plan. They ccuM get a deduction by paying into a pension plain of their own. Sen. Lloyd Bentsem (R- Texas) has sponsored a bill to permit a deduction. WON'T CANADA TRY THIS? Canada provides this deduction for employes who set up their own plan. The Canadian experience dhows tlhat not many low-dncomc employes use it. This tells us something about the whole arrangement. By and large, tax benefits for pensions are not of much value to low-income employes. At tow incomes, people don't save much anyway. Also, the interest that could be earned by postponing a 19 per cent tafx is a lot less than the interest possible from postponing a 50 per cent tax. (NEXT: What Will Happen?)
