WOOD Town Clei k Special hours for Social Security office The Social Security District office in Waterloo will Ix 1 open from ;> to 8 p. m. every Wednesday eve mnx fiv three weeks only starting Nov. 29 for the convenience of peo pie 65 or over, who work during the day. In announcing the •special eve ning hours, Earl T. Johnson, i lan ngor of the- Wiilc.-loo District of fice noted t';:.t i,ian.v oM,•:• p onlo in this area who are still emp'oy ed, cl) not understand that recent chanj;. s in the social security l;i\v now make it possibie for a good :n>mb" • of them to collect some binefu in addition to their callings. Okk.' wo.ke"s made eligible to collect some s'tcial sen:, ity IIMI fits for t'v yea' l"!il. ni ••. ,..,e some o. the p.iynvaU (!..>• them if they do not make application for them before the end of .January 1902, Mr. .Johnson said. Unfortunately. Mr. .Johnson said, a number of older people continue to think that they catvvt collet t any social security IxMiefits at all ii' their earnings are over $1,200 for the year. This is not true, he em phasiv.ed. To show how recent amend ments to the social security law have increased the amount an old er worker can earn and still collect some benefits, Mr. Johnson cited the following example: M'. and Mrs. Smith, who are both 65, could upon application be come entitled to a combined monthly benefit of $150, based on Mr. Smith's average earnings under social security of around $3,200 to ?'i,3(K) a year. Up until this year, this couple could not be paid any of their benefits if Mr. Smith's an nn.il earnings amounted to over $2,0.10. With the recent change in the law, M.-. Smith could have earn ings 01 $-,5IX) in liXil and the couple would have at.least $750 in benefits coming to them for the year. Ii his earnings were $.'1.000 the coi.ple would get at least $250 of thei. 1 social seem ity tunefils; even il hi- earned as much as $3,2(X), they would be able to col led at least $50 in Ix'iielits for the year. The social security d'st ict man.•!«•"• Sl'fr^cfs tnnt u-O'kiMg people (!r> or over who Hye not yet' app!:.-l fn • I'-ri • srwnl s••• nrit •• ben- i.its stop in ,-it his office during t'u- day, or during the special V 'dnesday evening hours, to find i t just where they stand. Some m.iy find that their earnings a-e too s 'bst-intial to permit i i.vment of any Ix-nefits right now, but the time devoted to their visit will sMIl lx- well spent. Mr. Johnson ,i ;i:i! :! cut that there is no disadvantage in filing a claim fo • social s( curity benefits after a worker has reached 65, even though he may be earning more than would permit him to draw !vne r it:; at the p-esent time. Even if no benefits are payable now, the necessary paper work in applying for benefits can be taken care of so that checks can be issued without delay after earnings have gone down or stopped entirely.
