KNOW YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY
John T. Grooms, representative of the Social Security
Administration, is in Edenton every Thursday at the North
Carolina Employment Security Commission office in the
Citizens Bank Building.
A question the Social Securi
ty Administration would like to
hear asked more often is, “Have
my earnings been properly
credited to my social security
Most people know something
about their rights and benefits
under social security tout many
do not know they have certain
obligations, too. For example,
have you checked your social
security record in recent years?
Do you know whether all your
earnings have been correctly
credited to your account? If
your answer is “No” to these
questions, you should take ac
tion now. Social security rec
ords should be checked at least
once every three years and the
sooner a worker checks the eas
ier it is to correct any errors
in his earnings record. This ad
vice applies to everyone but es
pecially to household workers
Who may work for several em
ployers at the same time, or who
may change jobs frequently, or
who may not work steadily.
Household workers are cover
ed by social security only if
they are paid cash wages of
$50.00 or more in a calendar
quarter by the same employer.
A household worker may find,
that her record does not reflect
ell her earnings because an em
ployer may have paid her less
than $50.00 in cash in a calendar
quarter. Also, the household
employee may find in checking
her social security account that
some of her earnings should
have been reported or credited
to her account and were not.
This could happen because the
worker did not furnish the em
ployer her social security num
ber when she asked for it. Or,
maybe the domestic repeated her
social security number from
memory and it was wrong or
the employer copied the num
ber incorrectly. Another possi
bility may be that your em
ployer does not realize that your
work around her home should
be reported and she fails to do
so. These are only a few rea
sons why you Should check your
social security account at least
once every three years. It is
good business to verify that your
earnings have been properly
credited to your acoount just as
you make sure you receive
credit for your bank deposits
and insurance premiums.
Remember that your social se
curity retirement, disability, and
survivors benefits will be based
on your social security account.
Therefore, it is good business
to check the record of your
earnings. It is an easy thing
to do, too. Just tell your near
