Here’s how they worK:
Every time you get paid, one
per cent out of every dollar is
taken from your pay. i The com
pany keeps a record of these pen
nies, and at the end of every
three months sends in that record
to the Collector o* Internal Rev
enue along with the money de
ducted. The company also sends
a payment of its own equal to
the amount it has deducted from
its employees. The Collector re

the record of your wages to the J

accounting office. In that Office
there’s a personal ledger account
for every person who hs a social

on the company’s report is then
entered in your personal account'

certain that the social security
people get your wages into your
account, it’s necessary that your
employer have a record of your
social security number, for the
company uses both your name and
your number when it makes its
report to the government.
Usually, when you start to
work for the first time on any
job. the company will ask to see
your social security card. If no
one asks, show your card to the
boss, the checker, or the time
keeper anyway. because when
pay day rolls around, you’re go

per cent for your old-age in-1

reports that money to the govern

make the payments), if your so

there's a chance that the money
you’ve paid might not get re

It’s the record or your wage in
that personal account which will
eventually determine how much
you’ll get paid later on. or how
much you family will get paid in
case of your death.
So regarding your social se

it’s important for you to make
sure that the company you’re
working for has a record of that
number, and that the record is
correct. The best time to do that
is when you’re starting in on a
new job. But if your present em
