4 · W*d., May 75, 1974 Questions About Social Security Editor's Note: This column is a ioint effort of public ser- vice'hy Hie TIMES and the Fayetlevillc Social Security Administration office. Mrs. Rose Newsome, district manager. Anyone having s question about social security in invited to send it to the Northwest Arkansas TRIES 72701. All inquiries must bo signed and (should include address of sender- Names will not be published. Q. My wife and I together receive approximately $280 a month social security. How much will it. be increased? Are we eligible for the Supplemental Security Income (SSI)? A. The check yon received on April 3. should have been for about J299.60. which represents a 7 per cent increase. Your check due July ! will add 4 per cent (about ?12). You and your wife are not eligible for SSI because your social security check (defined in the law as "earned income") is too high. When "earned income" for a couple living in their own household is $230 » month or more. triers can be no eligibility for SSI. Q. Our prescription d r u R s cost iis about $S4 a month. I am 72 and my wife is 67. Our social security check is less than $300 a month. I have heard t h a t social security would help with the d r u g bills, hut I've never found the "helper". A. Prescription drugs are not covered by Medicare unless you are in the hospital, or in a participating skilled nursing facility and you are a covered Medicare patient. I am sure you have read in the papers and heard on radio or TV t h a t hills were introduced in Congress to cover prescription drugs. NOUL of these have become law. Q. My husband was irisorec under Ixilh Railroad Retiremenl and Social Security Retiremen and was receiving a Railroad annuity and Social Security benefit prior to his death would Hke to know why monthly survivor benefits cannot be paid on both accounts? A. The law requires that rail road retirement and soda security credits be combiner for payment of survivor here fits. Payment is made by either (he Railroad Retirement. Board or Social Security, not by both. Normally, if a worker was receiving a railroad retirement annuity, the Railroad Retirement. Board will pay widow's (or other survivors) benefits a f t e r combining the t w o records. The law provides for reimbursement to the Railroad Retirement Trust Fund for the Social Security Trust Fund, if social security pays), to pay for the assumption of payment responsibility based on the combining of the two records. Q. I reached ago 72 in January, 1074. and I expected an increase in my social security check. My check was not increased. Why? A. Age 72 is a factor only if you are working. Beginning with the month you are 72. you can work and earn any amount of money and still get your check. Also, your benefit is increased by one percent for each year after age 65 and up to age 72 in which you received no benefit* because of work. If you have continued to work at a wage or self-employment income level too high to receive b e n e f i t s , y o n will start receiving approximately 107 percent of your basic benefit at age 72. Actually, it will be considerably higher than your benefit would have been had you stopped working at age 65. This is because of the higher earnings covered by social security in recent years.

They're veil pleased," Miller. 83, said loncliiy from his frame, ocean-- ront house at Little Ton* Key, bout 25 miles north ol Key Vest. Miller said his daughter, Bet y Brothers Rein, bought « fe- * n it I e bottle-noseil dolphin named Dal for $300 from, a krt jhiri training school in,. 1962 The second dolphin, a m a l e ' 1 called Siiwa, was purchased '$* 'ram the training school w h e n ^ t / al became lonely about, three Jj years later. |ijfi, "The cost of the dolphin isfeV? nothing. It's the cost of mam \ { iaininR one." Mrs. Rein said. , "Each weighs about 450 pounds} J and each cats about 20 pounds' of fish a day. And the fish ha to be suitable for h u m a n con-', sumption. They're so picky.' Mrs. Rein said she huys mackerel and bluefisli in two ton lots at about 35 cents a Iipund. That brings the chow bill for the two dolphins to ·' about $14 daily. Dal and Suwa were kept In.a /encccl-iti tidal estuary for four- years of training. But in 1%6 Mrs. Rein decided to remove'.I'. Lhe fences. · , "For six months, I was in the' ( " , ' , cfear--they went out and came' ' back every day. But then they ' went out and got lost," shd said. S h e and her husband"searched the ocean for five;:.-,i clays without results, Mrs. Rein ' . said. .^ i "Then on the sixth day, a'-" man who had been fishing said they came out of the water, stood on their tails and looked at the hait bucket." Mrs. Rein said. The man lured them back . . towards her home. "I jumped in the water ani . ' called them and (hey came running. They can hear a mile in the wafer." she said. She said the fence was never rebuilt and the dolphins, although free to leave, have stayed close to home ever since. "They could easily go. but- they don't. I think they got so hungry, they realized that life · out in the ocean was tough," she said. On safe this wee/^-i SCTSNO. / J | 1 3 1 4 - I RECIPE CARD LIBRARY AT YOUR * SAFEWAY!
