Sell-Employed Persons Covered
Now Under Social Security Law
I Many self -employes bustness
I men are not aware of their com
pulsory coverage In the old-age
and survivors insurance system
provided toy the changes In the
social security law, effective
January 1, 1951.
Miss Margaret Lowder. mana
ger of the Gastonla Social Secur
ity Administration office reports
that almost half of the business
men she quesions do not know of
the tax liability they Incurred all
through 1951. The tax liability
for 1951 becomes due and paya
ble In the ilrst quarter of 1952,
and each year thereafter. An
equal number of self-employed
failed to. realize their self-em
ployment earnings after 1950
were building toward old-age
and survivors insurance protec
tion for themselves and their
Miss Lowder pointed out that
the small businessman now has
the same protection against loss
of income due to retirement or
death as wage earners have had
since 1940. She summarized the
self-employed person's status un
der social security as follows:
1. Generally speaking, cover
age of the self-employed person
Is compulsory under the old-age
and survivors Insurance section
of the Social Security Act, if net
earning* amount to $400 or more
The only exceptions are self
employment earnings from farm
owners or operators tnd a lew
professions, such as doctors, law
yers, etc. These occupations were
excluded by the law itself and
cannot be counted toward this
2. Old-age and survivors in
surance provides very definite
protection in terms of a 'base for
financial security to the self-em
ployed person and his family.
Monthly benefits range from $20
to $150, depending upon wage
earnings and the pattern of the
insured's family at the time ben
efits become available.
3. 'flie self-employed person
must have a social security ac
count number to identify the
eairnings to be posted in his in
If yoU have never had a social
security card, fill out an appli
cation for one, on hand at any
post office, and send U to the
Gastonla Social Security Office.
If you have lost your card, you
should ask for a copy. You should
have only one social security
number in your lifetime.
4. Self-employment earnings
must be propectly reported each
year to secure credit towards thisj
insurance. They are reported byj
the Individual on a special sec
tion of his individual income tax
form. 1951 earnings will be re
ported on the income tax form
due (by March 15. 1952. A self
employed person cannot report
himself on the quarterly social
security for 941 used for reporting
employees' wages. He makes one
yearly report and pays his tax
in full at that time. The tax is
2 1/4 percent of taxable self-em
ployment earnings. Only the first
$3,600 of earnings is taxable.
The 1951 tax will be between
$9 and $81, depending on the a
mount of net earnings from self
employment. Payment is com
pulsory, so it would be a good
idea to budget for the amount
due, it was pointed out.
Miss Lowder reminded that
detailed Information about this
program of old-age and surviv
ors insurance is available with
out charge ?t the Gastonla Social |
Security office in the postofflce
