Perhaps in the past you have
said, or have heard someone say:
"John If. was a corporation offi
cial with an upper-brackeU sal
ary. Now lie's retired and getting
social security benefit payments
monthly. 1 have my own business
and make modest income. When
1 retire, my income stops. 1 don't
come under social security."
That statement, made before
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
have social security protection.
The self-employed ? people
who work for themselves ? may
begin building toward old-age
and survivors insurance on the
first of live ,vMf. They, like the
salaried worker, may -ge.1 montli j
ly insurance payments w hen they:
retire: their families may pet
survivor's insurance if the self-;
employed worker should die.
The self-employed person will
bo covered by social security if
his net^earnings are at least $-100
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 self-employed person (who
is in effect both employee and
employer) will pay a social se
curity tax of 2 1/4 of his net earn
ings where the amount is $400 or
more in a year, beginning with
his net earnings for 1951. He
wij not pay on earnings of over
$3,600 a year. His first report for
social security purposes of his
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 $-100 and up to $3,-600 wj)l
include any profit from' his bus
iness operations (as sole owner or
partner) but vOi ! 1 not include in

sources as rentals from real es
tate, unless he is a real estate
deafer, or dividends or interest
from stocks or bonds, unless he is
in the business of securities ex

five kinds of trade's arid busi
ness en terprUvS in which selt
employment will count toward
old age and survivors insurance
benefits are varied. As sole own
er or partner, you may operate a
store, a beauty parlor or a filling
station. You may have a barber
shop, a taverft, or operate your
own taxi. You may be self-em
ployed in your own manufactur
ing plant, or you may have a
shoe-shine stand. The size of your
business js not a consideration.
