"We honored a small and se
lect group of people who on Mon
day. January 4 received their
SOOth monthly social security
check," Douglas Butler, Field Rep-
resentative of the Asheville dis
trict office said today. "We are
very proud of them."
Butler explained that "this
small ffroup of people" became en
titled to monthly benefit checks
starting January 1940, the first
month that such benefits were
payable under the Social Security
To be entitled to a monthly re
tirement benefit in January 1940
one had to be at least 65 years
old. "So, after receiving monthly
checks for 25 years," Butler went
on, "such an lnoaviauai would now
be at least 90 years old and
most likely older. Therefore it is
a very small and select group in
deed who received their SOOth so
cial security check on January 4.
By their work and payment of so
cial security taxes at the very
beginning of the program, they
earned the right to these benefits.
We take off our hats to them."
In addition to this 25th anni
versary of monthly benefit pay
ments now celebrated, 1965 will
also mark the 30th anniversary of
the Social Security Act, which
was signed by President Frank
lin D. Roosevelt in August 1936.
Butler stated that beneficiaries
under the old-age and survivors
insurance program, as well as the
disability insurance program which
was added in 1954, have received
benefits totaling more than $114
billion from January 1940 to the
present. Monthly benefit payments
made dtsring that first year, 1940.
were just over $15 million, and
went to 102,941 aged workers,
their dependents, and survivors.
"The social security program
as a whole has shown a steady
growth during this 25-year peri
od. Benefits paid during the 1964
fiscal year, from July 1963
through June 1964, totaled $15.8
billion. At the end of 1964, over
20 million people were receiving
monthly benefit payments."
Social security benefits actual
ly are paid out of two separate
trust funds maintained in the U. board.
S. Treasury. These funds have
been built up with the social se
curity taxes paid by employees,
their employers and self-employed
persons. "Money not needed
for the payment of current bene
fits and for the administration of
the program is invested in interest-bearing
securities of the U. S.
Government. The interest thus
added to the funds is enough to
pay for the administrative costs
of the program several tunes ov
The old-age and survivors in
surance trust fund totaled $19.7
billion at the end of fiscal year
1964, and the disability insurance
trust fund established in January
