Number 10: Your Social Security benefit is based on your earnings, so make sure your employer is using your correct name and Social Security number when reporting your earnings to the government. Number 9: Social Security is more than retirement. Disability coverage for people who can't work for a year or more and survivors benefits for the family members of a worker who has died are impor- tant and often overlooked parts of soci00 Secu00. Number 8: When you work, you earn Social Security "credits," up to a nmaimum of four per year. Most people need 40 credits (10 years of work) to qualify for retire- ment benefits. Younger people need fewer credits for disability and survivors coverage. Number 7: Social Security provides benefits to qualified fami- ly members of retired and disabled workers. Generally, children under 18 can get checks and so can a spouse who's 62 or older or who's caring for a minor child. In many cases, divorced spouses also get benefits. Number 6: You can get an estimate of your Social Security benefits and a copy of your earn- ings history by calling 1-800- 772- 1213. Number 5: Check with Social Security about a year before you plan to retire. In some cases, you can get retirement benefits even before you stop working.

Public Notice On February 22,1994, Southwestern Bell Telephone Company ("Southwestern Bell" or "Company") filed an application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas ("Commission") to restructure the Company's Local Transport and Directory Transport categories of its Switched Access Service. This matter has been assigned to Docket No. 12784. The tadff sheets in Southwestern Bell's applica- tion, if approved, will bring the Company's intrastate Access Service Tariff into structural parity with the Company's interstate Tariff No. 73 for Local Transport. Southwestern Bell's companion interstate tariff became effective on January 1,1994. The transport rate elements provide for the transmission facilk ties between the cutomer's premises and the end office switch(es) where the customer's traffic is switched to originate or terminate the customer's communications. Southwestern Bell proposes to Implement the revised tariffs on a revenue neutral basis. Although the proposed tariff changes will affect all customers subscribing to Switched Access Service, the Local Transport and Directory Transport categories of Southwestem Bell's Switched Access Service is primarily for interexchange farrier& if approved, this application will result in an increase in Southwestern Bell's revenues of approximately $1082.00 during the first year. Southwestern Bell proposes that the changes be effective on December 1,1994. Persons who wish to intervene in or comment upon these pro- ceedings should notify the commission as soon as possible, as an intervention deadline will be imposed. A request to intervene or for further Information should be mailed to the Public Utility Commis- sion of Texas, 7800 Shoal Creek Boulevard, Suite 400N, Austin, Texas 78757. Further information may also be obtained by calling the Public Utility Commission's Public Information Office at (512) 458-0256 or (512) 458-0221 for text telephone. The deadline for intervention in the proceeding is May 6,1994. Southwestern Bell Telephone retirement benefits, we need to see a certified copy of your birth certifi- cate and your last W-2 form (or tax return if you're self-employed). Number 3: Social Security should not be directly compared to private savings and pension programs because "social" objec- fives are a fundamental part of So- cial Security. For example, workers with low incomes get a benefit that represents a higher percentage of their earnings than do well-paid workers. Number 2: You should not expect to live on your Social Security. The program was always intended to supplement, not replace, private pension plans and other savings and investments. Number 1: Social Security will be there when you need it. So- cial security has changed a lot in the last 60 years and it undoubtedly will change in the next 60 years.., but a basic program that provides benefits to retired people, to people with disabilities, and to the survivors of a worker who has died will always be the foundation of our society's income maintenance net- work. Q: I have heard that people who are born on the first or second day of the month can conect an extra month of Social Security benefits when they retire? Is that true? A: It's possible. According to the Social Security law, the earfiest that you can be eligible for a retire- meut check is the full month you are 62. The law also says you "at- tain" your age the day before your birthday. So, if you were born June 2, for example, you legally attain your age on June I and you would be eligible for benefits for June be- cause you're considered 62 for the entire month. Of course, if you were born on June 1, you also would receive benefits for June be- cause you are age 62 the entire month. Q: Can I use my TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf) to call Social Security on the national Social Security toll- free voice line? A: TDD use is limited to the special toll-free TDD service line. Voice calls should not be made to the TDD toll-free number and TDD calls should not be made to other Social Security numbers es- tablished for voice callers. The So- cial Security national TDD toll- flee number is 1-800-325-0778, the Social Security toll-free number es- tablished for voice callers is 800- 772-1213. Q: Will my Social Security retirement benefit be based on how much I earned during my best 10 years of work? A: No. Most individuals need about 10 years ofwork to be eligible for Social Security, but the benefit amount is based on many more years of earnings. For everyone born after 1928, it's based on the highest 35 years of earnings. Q: If I work after I start receiving Social Security retire- ment benefits, will I have to pay FICA taxes? A: Yes, and your extra earn- ings may increase your benefits. For additional information, call Page 7 your local Social Security office or Social Security's toll-time number, 1-800-772-1213. Q: My father, who re..eives Supplemental Security Income, just received an insurance settle- ment as a result of fire damage to his home. Must he report this money as income to Social Security? A: No, As long as the money is used to repair the damage to his home, it doesn't connt as income for SSI purposes. Q: I found some old medical bills that I forgot to submit to Medicare for payment under my medical insurance. Can I still sub- mit them or is there a time limit on when claims must be submitted? A: You have at least 15 months from the date on which you receive the bill to submit it for pay- ment under your medical in- surance. O: My family doctor wants me to start getting pneumococcal vaccine every year. Will my Medicare medical insurance cover the cost? A: Yes. Medical insurance will pay for the pneumococcal vac- cine and its administration. Medicare will pay these charges regardless of whether you have met your annual medical insurance de- ductible.
