The increase will first appear in checks delivered in early Feb- ruary. "But under new social security legislation, a widow who start- ed getting benefits at 65 or later can get the same benefit that her husband would have received at 65," Briggs said. "If she first started getting checks before 35, the benefit will be less than the full amount of her bus- band's benefit but not less than she was getting before. "For example, a widow who started getting benefit s at age 62 will not get 82.9 percent of her husband's benefit amount, instead of the 82.5 percent she receives under present law." v v v ,F vv  v  v v v v v v v Claude-Goodnight AA AAAAAAA AAA A AAAA The Claude basketball teams faired well in their conference games last Friday night.
