This form is a statement of their salaries or wages for 1963 and the amount of taxes withheld. For 9 out of 10 wage earn- ersi, social security flaxes • of 3%% were taken out of the first $4,800 of their earnings. Hal Ceeldon, district manager., of social security in Amarillo, suggests that every worker should occasionally ask for a statement of earnings credited to his social security account This statement] can be compared with personal records such as the withholding tax form, to Ibe sure ithe social security record is correct. It's even more imjportant for the worker to do this if he has held several different jobs during the year. Geldon said it\ is very easy to gefe (this statement from social security. His office ihas a preraddreased post card used to request a wage statement. Future social security payments will be based on the wages posted to .tjhe worker's account. For this reason it's impotiteint for the wages to t>e correctly reported and credited. .
