YOUR QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Q. I understand there is a lump-sum death payment made by the Social Security Admin- istration upon the death of an insured person. Is the pay- ment based on the amount of the burial expenses? A. No. The payment is de- termined by the amount of work under social security. The lump sum death payment~ ranges from a minimum of $120.00 to a maximum of $255. Q. My wife and I both re- ceive monthly benefit checks from social security. May each of us earn $1200 and still re. ceive all of our checks or must both of us limit our total earn- ings to $12007 A. The retirement test under social security allows each in- dividual to earn $1200 and still receive all of his checks, Thus, you may earn $1200 and your wife may earn $1200. Q. I will be 62 next month and am planning to retire. What should I bring with me to your office. You should bring your so- cial sec"arity number, proof of your age, and your W-2 form for last year. If you are self- employed, you should bring your 1965 tax return and that you have paid the self- employment tax -- such as your cancelled check, etc. Medicare To Replace Texas 65 Policy H. Lewis Rietz, president of the Texas 65 Health Insur- anee Association, announced Monday that Medicare will eliminate the need for which Texas 65 was established, that is offering health insurance protection to Texans over age of 65. Rietz stated that when Med- icare goes into effect on July 1, health insurance coverage will be readily available to everyone over age of 65, and since Medicare will duplicate most of the coverages offered by Texas 65, the latter will t~zninate its program at mid- night, June 30. He emphasiz- ed, however, that Texas 65 will continue to offer health insur- ance protection to its members until Medicare takes over, and that it will remain in operation after July 1 to handle claims incurred before its termina- tion. Rietz urged those who are now protected by Texas 65, or other private health insurance plans, to keep their policies in force until Medicare benefits start on July 1, so that they will not be without coverage should illness or accident oc- cur. The Texas 65 Health Insur- ance Association was authoriz- ed by special legislation, en- es : F -'" . "5: o. '" "o" Q .o acted by the 1963 Texas Legis- lature. Since its first emmll- ment period in October of ttlat )'ear, Rietz said it has paid claims in excess og $7,700,000 to over 42,000 Texans. "Through these payments," he said, "Texas 65 has helped thousands of Texas families avoid financial disaster due to illness or accident. The 64 in- surance companies who have underwritten the program are glad to have been able to of- fer this smwice to the people of this State," he concluded. Rietz said that some 35,000 Texans now enrolled in Texas 65 have been notified of the July termination of the pro- gram, and that they had been urged to enroll in Part B, the voluntary portion of Medicare, which provides for doctor's services and certain other meal- Mrs. Lloyd Johnston is visit- ing her sister, Mrs. Charlie Kyser, in Waco.
