A. It is a federallyfinanced program that offers cash payments to supplement the income of certain needy individuals. Questions About Social Security Editor's Notes This column fs a joint otfoi't of public service by the TIMES and the Fayclleville Social Security Administration office. Mrs. Rose Newsome, district manager. Anyone having a question ahout social security is invited to send it to the Northwest Arkansas TIMES, 72701. All inquiries must be signed and should include address of sender. Names will not ba published. Q. Who can get cash payments under the Supplemental Security Income Law? A. The individual must be cither blind, disabled, or age 65 or older and in financial need. A. Are thera any requirements for payments of Supplemental Security Income benefits besides 'being FDlind, disabled, or over 65? A. Yes. Tliere is an Income test and what we call a resources test. A person must not have income or own property over certain amounts in order to qualify. The program Is designed to offer assistance only to persons who are in need and strict guidelines are established to determine who can get these payments and how much. Q. Where does the Government get the money to finance this Supplemental Security IncomeProgram? A, All f u n d s come from general revenues of the U.S. Treasury. Q. Are social security trust funds being used to make Supplemental Security Income payments? A. No. Social security trust funds are used only to pay social security claims and administrative costs of operating :he social security program. All benefit payments and administrative costs to operate, the laws are paid out of general revenue funds. Q. Can people who at present receive social security checks a l s o collect Supplemental Security Income payments? A. This depends on how much the social security benefits are and whether the claimant has other chargeable income. An individual who has chargeable income of as much ns $168 a rr|0nth"0r a couple- that has chargeable Income of $239 a month could not receive any payments. However, not all income is chargeable and anyone desiring more detail should contact his social security office promptly. Q. You are always urging people who feel they can qualify come to sign up promptly. What's the rush? A. There are several reasons. But perhaps the most important is that no payment can be marie for any month prior to the one during which a claim is signed. Waiting too long can result in loss of payments that can never he collected. Since this program is in operation to offer relief to certain people who are in need, they should make claims and collect as soon as possible. Sell Bonds And Preferred Slock LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Arkansas Power Light Co. is seeking permission to sell $60 million in bonds iind to issua common and preferred stock valued at $30 million. APL presented the request to the state Public Servica Commission Tuesday. The transactions would provide cash for APH/'s construction program and increase Its permanent capital. APL's application expressed some misgivings about the market conditions for the transactions. It proposed to sell the first- mortgage bonds and 150.003 shares of preferred stock by competitive bidding, but the utility said it might request permission from the Securities and Exchange Commission to seek negotiated sales with underwriters because of the poor market conditions. The application said tha bonds might have to have terms different from of previous bond is.sups because of the market conditions. The. bonds, it said, would mature at periods ranging from five to 30 vears, depending on the market conditions just prior to the sale. APL proposed to issue a new series of preferred stock at 5100 par value. An issue of 150.100 shares would bring $15 million. APL said the market for preferred stock was so poor that it might not be able to sell all of the shares. M i d d l e South Utilities, APL's parent f i r m , would ouy the new issue of 1,2 million shares. APl plans to use the proceeds of the bond and slock sales to obtain cash for cons t r u c t i o n and extension of its facilities and lo refund soma short-term indebtedness.
