SOCIAL SECURITY AID
THE W0RKII6MAN
Last time, you remember, you
read here actual cases of work
ingmen—and wives and children
of workingmen—who lost money
because they did not get in touch
with the Social Security Admini
stration when they became 65
years old. Or, in the case of
wives, and children, they did not
see the social security people
when the worker died.
A lot of people have wrong
ideas about this social security,
and its these wrong ideas which
keep them from seeing about the
payments which are coming to
them. Now no matter what
you’ve been told by others, or
whether or not you think you can
fie paid, when you become 65 years
old, stop in at the social security
office. And tell your wife and
the rest of your family to also
stop there if anything should
happen to you. Make this a rule
and stick by it.
The people who run the social
security law are working for you.
They are instructed by Federal
regulations to answer your ques
tions. It doesn’t cost anything
to ask, but if you don’t ask, it
might cost you plenty in lost ben
efits.
This old-age and survivors in- i
suranee is provided for you by
law if you qualify. But many
P^gple lose money because they
do not file a claim promptly.
Don’t forget: You workingmen
are paying good hard cash for
this insurance, and you and your
family have a RIGHT to it. You
wouldn’t keep from asking an in
surance company to pay off on a
policy you’ve purchased, would
you? Well don’t keep from ask
ing for your social security pay
ments when you’re 65. And tell
your wife to ask for these pay
ments if you should die.
Here in the Charlotte district
there are a -number of older work
ers who came from “the old
country.” If you are one of these
workers, don’t think that that
keeps you from getting your so
cial security payments. It does
not. It doesn’t even make any
difference whether you are a cit
izen or not. Some persons lose
i benefits because they think non
citizens can’t collect. That’s
wrong. If you are one of the
persons who thinks this way, and
you are over 66 years old, you’d
better see about it.
Another thing that has some
people worried , is the matter of
property. Under this old-age in
surance program it doesn’t make
any difference whether you have
any property or not. And if
you do have prdpeny, no one asks
you about it. You won’t lose any
property by applying for your
old - age insurance payments.
Neither will your wife if she is
65. And you can feel safe in
knowing, that, in case of your
death, your wife and children will
not have to give up any property
to get these payments. So, now
if there are any of yon men of
labor who are not citing bene*
fits (if you’re eligible for them)
because of this, you too, should
see about it.
Strange as it may seem to some
people, there have been persons
who didn’t apply for social securi
ty payments because they didn’t
need the money, that’s okay, but
you don’t have to NEED the
money in order to get paid from
old-age and survivors insurance.
The Social Security Administra
tion doesn’t ask you (or your
family) what you need or what
you don’t need. All the Admini
stration wants to know is whether
you’ve worked long enough. Most
of you men of labor have worked
long enough.
One feature of this social se
curity office which is different
from a lot of offices is that, if
necessary, they’ll make arrange
ments to suit you. If you can’t
get to see them when their of
fice is open, or if you live too
far away, just write them a let
ter. They’ll make some kind of
arrangement to get things going J
so you can be paid. For your
information, the local office of the
Social Security administration is
at 122 East Third Street, Char
lotte, North Carolina, telephone
2-6033. Office hours are from
9:00 A. M. to 6:00 P. M., Monday
through Fridays.

HJULS LABOR’S GOALS
Washington,—Secretary of De
fense Louis Johnson issued the
following message commemorat
ing Labor Day:
“I welcome the opportunity of
fered by Labor Day to extend
greetings to American labor on
behalf of the Department of De
fense. Among the nation's work
ing men and women we count by
the millions our friends who
served in the Army, the Navy,
and the Air Force or who sup
ported the armed forces on the
production line. Today American
workers are making clear their
gram is a “do-nothing” policy,
Mr. Green invited the supprt of
progressive groups from all seg
ments of American life to join
with labor in supporting broad
social measures. He warned:
“If we allow the Tafts and
Byrds to run our country, and to
run it on a policy of doing noth
ing, we will get nowhere. We
believe in doing something and
getting somewhere.”
