THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 1939. WAGES COUNT FOR BENEFITS Workers Over 65 Years Of Age To Get Insurance Benefits. More than 2,756 men and women In the State of Maryland who reached age 65 during: 1937, 1938 and 1939, after working for some time in jobs covered by old-age insurance provisions, have received lump- sum payments from the Social Security Board. Despite the fact that they have already received such lump-sum payments, some of them can claim monthly benefits under the amended Social Security Act. Others not entitled to monthly benefits, by continuing to work, may become eligible later on. This statement was made yesterday by Mr. Charles E. Bailey, manager of the Field Office of the Social Security Board, who said that every effort is being made to inform workers 65 years of age or o.ver that they still have a chance to qualify for monthly benefits. In no case will such benefits amount to less than $10 per month; and once qualified, these older insured workers may receive regular benefit payments every month for the rest of their lives. Special consideration for older men and women is manifested in the provision which enables •, worker to extend his wage record beyond his 65th birthday and thereby .acid a little each month to his retirement benefits. "In other Avords," said Mr. Bailey, "the clause in the original law which excluded a worker after age 65 has been cancelled. Under the revised act, a worker may continue adding to his-. Avage record, year after year, as long as he keeps his job Avith an industrial or commercial concern. Now (beginning Jannary 1, 1939) commercial and industrial workers, even though they are 65 years old and have received lump-sum payments, are permitted to re-enter the system and again ava-il themselves of the financial protection of Government old-age insurance." In explaining changes in the act regarding elderly workers, this illustration Avas used: An insured Avorker Avho reached age G5 January 1. 193S, filed claim for payment of benefits; received his one check from the Social Security Board; Quizzed In Scalding FIVtf FINAL CLEARANCE OF James R.

Would Fight Kuhn kept his same job through 193S: and continues in such employment this year and next. His Avages during 1937. 193S. 1939 and 19-10 will be credited to his Social Security account, but his employment during 193S (after he reached age 65) Avill not count toward monthly benefits because at that time employment after age 65 was not covered by old-age insurance. A clause in the new law makes it possible for him to receive credit for Avages pah! to him in 'covered employment nfter January I, 1939, Avhethor he works one month or i.Aventy years nfter his 65th birthday. And the longer he Avorks the greater his retirement benefits Avill become. Capitol police stepped in when Representative Joseph Starnes (D- Ala) started, fists swinging, for Fritz Knhn.
