“Did ybu hear about Andy’s widow
and young ones?”
“Sure. I was at the funeral. Poor
Andy wasn’t able to leave them much,
^was he? Why do you ask about them.
Joe? Are we going to pass the hat?”
“No, Pete, we’re not. Not this time.
You see, we’ve already passed the hat.
You and I and Ajidy and millions of
other men anti women have chipped in
for Andy’s family—and for your fam
ily and mine. We collected enough to
make sure that Andy’s kids won’t have
to be sent to an orphan asylum. They’ll
stay with their mother where they be
long while they are growing up.”

“It’s been going on for some time,
Pete, and it’s still going on. I mean
the Federal family insurance of the
Social Security Act. That’s a part of
Old-Age and Survivors Insurance.”
“Oh that! Sure we’ve all been taxed
for thit. It's been taken out of our
y wages every pay-day. Rut I’ve always
thought of that as paying for a pen
sion when I get too old to work.”
“You’re wrong on twvpoints there,
Pete. In the first place, it is not a
pension you get when you receive so
cial security retirement benefits. It is
insurance payments. The tax is like
an insurance policy premium. And,
just gs with private insurance, when
it pays off, nobody asks you if you
need the money—or how badly you
need it—your Federal Old-Age and
Survivors Insurance checks come to
you as & matter of right.”
“O. K. So I won’t call it a pension
any more. What else did I have
“You thought that Old-Age and Sur
vivors Insurance was for retirement
benefits only. But it Isn’t It covers
your family too, when you retire and
also if you should die—as it did in
the case of Andy’s family.”
“But, Pete, you’re not the only one
who hasn’t thought about the family
angle. Since I’ve been on the Social
Security Committee of this Local I’ve
found a number cf fellows who don’t
know their entire stake in this social

Joe. We all ought to know how it

“First we are going to get the man
ager of the nearest Social Security
Board office to come to a meeting of
the Local. We want him to tell us
about our rights and benefits and we
want him to answer the questions
we’ll ask him. That’s the best way to
learn things—ask questions.”
