Are you among the many
workers past retirement age who
have not yet applied for social
security ^benefits because you'
are still employed? If so, you
may be losing benefits to which
you are entitled,
A recent change in the law
now makes it possible for many
more older people to work and
still be paid some social security
benefits. You donr't have to re-
tire completely to get benefits.
Under the law, as it stands
now, you can earn up to $1200 a
year and still collect benefits for
every month. If you earn -o^r
$1200 in a year, you will lose"
some benefits. One dollar of
social security benefits is with**
held for each $2 earned between
$1200 and $1700. For every $1
earned over $1700, $1 of benefits
will be withheld.
For example, if you earned
$2100 in a year, $650 in benefits
will be witheld (one-half of the
$500 between $1200 and $1700,
plus the $400 in excess of, $1700).
If your monthly benpfit rate a-
mounted to $120, your yearly
benefit amount of $1440 wouid
be reduced by $650, permitting
you to get $790 in benefits for
If you have reached retirement
age but are still working, check
with your local social security
office. A delay in filing could re-
sult in loss of benefits.
A representative of the Lub-
bock Social Security office will
be in Crosbyton in the court-
house at 9:00 a.m. on Wednes-
day, March 28 and will be glad
to assist in all matters pertain-
ing to social security.
