Castonia Social Security Office
j Perhaps in the past you have
said, or have heard someone say:
"John H. -was a corporation offi
cial with an upper-brackets sal
ary. Now he's retired and getting
social security benefit payments
monthly. 1 have my own business
and make modest income. When
1 1 retire, my income stops. I don't
| come under social security."
That statement, made before
j the President signed the amend
ed Social Security Act, would
have been wholly true. However,
under the new law, and begin
ning in January 1951, you may
J have social security protection.
The self-employed ? people
who work for themselves ? may
j begin building toward old-age
I and survivors insurance on the
iQrst of the year.. They, !:ko ihe
I Salaried *v.-ker, may gel month, i
!y insurance payments when they j
retire: their families ma\ . get
survivor's insurance if the self
employed worker should die.
The self-employed person will
be covered by social security if
his net^earnlngs art1 at least $400 j
a year. He will be given a quar
ter of coverage for each $100 of
his earnings but not more than
four quarters of coverage can be
credited to any one year,
The jelf employed person (who
is in effcet both employee and
employer) will pay a social se
curity tax of 2 174 of his net earn
ings where the amount is $400 or
more In a year, beginning with
his net earnings for 1951. He
wil not pay on earnings of over
$3,600 a year. His first report for
social security purposes of hfs
earnings from self - employment
will be made as part of his in
come tax return filed on January
1 or March 15, 1952.
This report of his net earnings
over $400 and Up to $3,600 will
include any profit from his bus
iness operations (as sole owner or
partner) hut wijl not ihclude in
come from such non business
sources as rentals from real es
tate,. unless he is a real estate
j dealer, or dividends or Interest
j from stocks or bonds, unless he is
I in the business of securities ex
change. Capital gains and loss
es, ,-ittd income from an estate or
trust will not In.' considered ;w
earnings for social security pur
The kinds of trades, and busi
ness enterprises in which self
employment' will count toward
eld age and survivors insurance
benefits are varied. As sole own
er or partner, you may oj?erate a
store, a beauty parlor or a filling
station. You may have a barber
shop, a tavern, or operate your
Own taxi. You may be self -em
ployed in your own manufactur
ing plant, or you may have a j
shoe-shine stand. The size of your
business is not a consideration.
Again, you may be a free-lance
writer, artist, sign painter oj in
To determine more quickly
whether y?ur ? svlf - o m p 1 oy me nt
work' will i-nmo iriidrr social se
curity lu January, scan the fol
lowing1 'list- <?( excluded profes
sions and business operations.
Your earnings wilt not ho covered
by the; law if they come from self
employment as a phistieian, den
tist, osteopath, chiropractor, op
tometrist, naturopth, Christian
Science practitioner, veterinarian,
funeral director, lawyer, as a cer
tified, licensed, registered or full
time practicing accountant, or as
a professional engineer or archi
tect. Farm operators also, are not
covered by social security.
In my next articlc I shall dis
cuss the household employee, the
second largest group to become
eligible for old age and survivors
'insurance benef lis under the new
social security law.
