ii!i  ;ept Added for Security Rules Retirement Age added a the year of  to the social which will be Workers who are do so comes as made in the earnings, the decide if a social security 0ntinue to get them while working. The new test provides that, except in the year of retirement, a person's social security benefit will be reduced $I for each $2 of earnings above the annual limit. The 1978 annual limit is $4,000 for people 65 and over, and $3,240 for people under 65. Because it would be unfair to workers retiring in the middle of the year to apply only the annual test of earnings, the year of retirement was adopted. The year of retirement is the first year in which annual earnings exceed the annual i limit, during which there is a month the person is both eligible for monthly benefits and neither earns more than the monthly limit in wages nor performs substantial services in self- employment. The 1978 monthly limit is $334 for people 65 and over $270 for people under 65. During the year of retirement, a person can receive benefits based on the monthly measure. After the year of retirement, benefit payments will be based on annual earnings. Those interested can get more information about the annual earnings test at the Martinsburg social security office, located at 615 W. King St. The telephone number os 263-6911.
