Farm rental income Now counts toward Social security benefits Under a recent ruling, a farm landlord may now have his farm rental income counted toward his social security benefits even if he has an agent who participates for him In the operation of the farm, advised Mr. Earl T. Johnson of the Waterloo District Office. Until now, it was necessary for the landlord to participate personally in the production or management of production in order to get these social security credits. An agent is any person or firm who, by oral or written agreement, performs activities the landlord has agreed to perform for his tenant on behalf of the landlord and with bis authority. These activities which may include physical labor, decisions effecting production, advice to the tenant regarding management, or financial help, are treated just as if they were performed by the farm landlord, said Mr. Johnson. If this ruling applies to you or, if you desire additional information, write or telephone your nearest social security district office and ask for pamphlet OASI-33d.
