Transcript -MAIN POINTS OF NEW SOCIAL SECURITY AMENDMENT- Benefits for individuals aged 50 and over who are totally disabled. "Primary" benefits, wife's benefits, widow's benefits, and parent's benefits payable to women at and after age 61, instead of age 65. Continuation of child's benefits for children after age 18, if they were totally disabled on attaining age 18 and, except for age, would be eligible for child's benefits. Coverage to lawyers, dentists, veterinarians, Chiropractors, optometrists, and other professional workers. SVE.m EE PHOTO ^ Left: Congressman Jere Cooper (D-Tenn.) introduced the Social Security bill, H. R. 7225. Right: Senator Olin D. Johnston (D-S.C.i stated that we should honor and take care of our aged people. e& V security can and must be guaranteed, claim advocates of a liberal Social Security system. They say that changing social conditions make increased Social Security benefits imperative, and that the federal government is the logical dispenser of such benefits. This line of reasoning is outlined below. SVlIEi: SVOIILD PHOTO advocates of a liberalized Social i\ Security program maintain that **• A.if foes of the program could read some of the thousands of pathetic, °ften tragic, letters which pour into ■he offices of legislators, pleading for Assistance, perhaps they would not be luite so adamant in their objections to amendment. Proponents of H. R. Bill 7225, which 'beralizes Social Security benefits, [•'aim that its passage will prove a "°on to hundreds of thousands who *r<' disabled, as well as to women who **H be able to retire at 62 instead of ^ years of age. When President Eisenhower signed the bill on August 1, 1956, he e*Pressecl the hope that it would "•Vance the economic security of the c°untry. Those senators and congressmen who have long fought for passage t. r***CTs Foiil'M NEWS, October, 1956 of the bill feel sure that it will indeed provide additional security. Senator Richard L. Neuberger (D- Ore.), speaking before the United States Senate, stated that older people today constitute more of our present low-income group than ever before in history. He said that many women are widowed in their fifties or early sixties, ancl that a great percentage of them have either never worked, or have not had recent work experience. Therefore, they find it all but impossible to find jobs. Thc only alternatives are either being dependent on their children, or seeking assistance from public or private welfare agencies. As for unmarried women who have held jobs for long periods of time, they find, when searching for new work, that the policies of new employers regarding age usually preclude their employment. The minority of tbe Senate Finance Committee stated: \u\ woman who loses her job between tin- age-s oi 62 and 65 cannot easily get other employment. Tlie hut is that the overwhelming majority of women at the a<^es of fill to 65 are net gainfully employed. When this age group is compared lo (In- age group 55 to 64, we find that women go out e>( tin- labor Iehe-e- about two and one-half times faster than men.1 Another aspect of the matter is the wives of men over 65 years of age . . . since wives are generally several years younger than their husbands, anel since a wile heretofore could not retire at an early age, the alternatives were to either try to live on the meager retirement income of the husband, or to work herself and help augment their income.
