According to David Hel-
mer, Social Security Man-
ager in Corsicana, the
purpose of Social Secur-
ity is to provide a cont-
inuing income to workers
and their families when
earnings are cut off or
reduced because of reti-

ath. Monthly payments,
generally, are reduced if
a person's earnings go
above a certain level in
any year. This rule is

The retirement test app-
lies to anyone receiving
Social Security checks
except for individuals
who are 70 or older, and
those who receive Disabi-
lity Benefits. At 70 a
worker can receive checks
regardless of his or her
One does not have to re-
tire completely in order
to receive SS checks;
however, it is important
that people realize how
earnings affect Social
Security checks. For th-
ose under age 70 and ex-
pecting to earn over the
allowed amount, some or
all of their SS checks
should be withheld. Then
at the end of the year,
when it is known exactly
how much was earned, any
adjustments in the amount
received can be made. The
allowed amount for in-
dividuals who will be
over age 65 at any point
in 1987 is $8160 and for
individuals under 65 the
ligure is $6000. If earn-
ings go over these amo-
unts, $1 of Social Secu-
rity Benefits will be
witheld for every $2 ov-
er the amount of earning-
Earned wages or self-
employment counts as ea-
rnings for SS purposes.
Helmer suggested that
those who would like mo-

retirement test contact

curity office at 705 Nor

JUNE IS A HAPPY MONTH
Lots of really nice things happen in the month of
June. Weddings, graduations, Father’s Day and a
lot of fun to look forward to as summer vacations
start to approach.
IT IS NO TIME TO BE SICK
You cannot enjoy yourself if you are not feeling
well. So do not let a possible illness spoil the good
times that will be coming along. It is a good idea to
plan a health-checkup with your physician and
dentist before you start off on any vacation trip.
TAKE YOUR MEDICINES WITH YOU
It is often difficult and sometimes impossible to
obtain prescription medicines while you are away
from home. So, make sure you have a sufficient
supply with you of any medicines that you take
regularly. Should you run short of any
unobtainable medicine, or if there is time, write,
and we will rush it to you.
LET US KNOW YOU ARE GOING
First of all you will want to stop in and see our
special display of health products that will usually
come in handy on most types of trips. Also, we will
be glad to give you more specific information about
which health-aids and toiletries to take along.
