New Benefits In Social Security Start Nov. 1st Some important changes have been made in the old-age and survivors insurance program as a result of the Social Security Amendments of 1956. All of the changes, directly or indirectly, affect people as a Whole. Working persons — employed and self-employed — need to know about them; their families need to know about them. Effective with November of this year, benefits will become payable to women when they reach age 62. Survivors benefits for widows and, in certain cases, mothers of deceased workers will start with a payment for November which will be received early in December. The amount of the monthly paytnent will be the same that they would have started getting at age 65 under the old law. Beginning with November 1956, retired insured women workers and wives of retired insured workers can start getting benefit payments at age 62. In these cases, the amount of the payment will be somewhat less than the amount that would have been payable at age 65 under the old law. A change has been made in the total disability provision in the law. While the "disability freeze" provision which protects the social security insurance "Hello!.... that you, Fred?" s-a-a-a-y I BE SURE TO SEE The New '57 PONTIACS FRIDAY!

Beginning with January 1957 monthly benefits are now payable to a disabled unmarried child, even after the child has reached age 18, if the child was disabled since before he reached 18 and is the dependent child of a retired or deceased parent, step-parent, or adopting parent who is eligible for old-age insurance benefits under social security, or was insured for the purpose of survivors benefits at the time of his or her death. Other important changes in the law affect farmers, both employed and self-employed. While there have been no changes in old-age and survivors insurance benefit rates, there are changes in the way benefits can be figured and the time necessary to become insured for payments. The latter provision is of special importance to persons whose kind of work is now covered by social security as of January 1, 1956. Newly-covered groups are lawyers, dentists, chiropractors, veterinarians, naturopafhs, osteopaths, and security on a permanent contributory basis after 1956 to members of the armed services on active duty. Some of the changes mentioned are retroactive to the beginning of 1950; others will become effective as of November of this year; still other changes will not go into effect until January 1. 1957; and one does not b?come effective until July 1, 1957. To Show Film On CROP Aid At Burt, Nov. 7 What happens to commodities and cash gifts collected in Kossuth County's CROP (Christian Rural Overseas Program) appeal is shown in a new film, entitled "I Saw The Need", to be shown at a meeting which will be held on November 7 at 8 p.m at the Burt Methodist Church. The public is invited to the showing, after which there wijl be a question and answer period on CROP in general and the County-wide door to door canvass to be November 11 - November 18th in particular. Those who have volunteered to canvass in the county will receive their material for keeping records at that time also. Gifts collected by CROP in its nation-wide campaign are shipped overseas by Church World 1 Service. The difference these gifts make in the destitute lives of resettled refugees in Greece, and the hopless future of Arab Children who are nol entitled to official rations in the refugee camps of the 1 Holy Lund, can be seen as they are photographed receiving food from churchmen. The film shows actual scenes taken overseas in eight countries. Tho filmed report on Korea shows amputee centers established with the help of CROP food gifts. Then; amputees are taught i.rades, while they'wait for their stumps to heal so that they may be fitted for artificial limbs. Many of the amputees are children. Orphanages receive flour and milk from CROP and the clinics are enabled to minister to the poorest of the poor with gifts from CROP. The greatest scourge of Korea today is TB. The Anti-TB program of the churches in Korea this your, Mr Radway states, will receive major support from CROP. The film is highly recommend- od. It is hoped that all those interested in the CROP campaign will see it and learn how far our support of CROP can go toward a better life for the neediest of the needy in other lands.
