Social Security Coverage Measure Has Been Changed People working in em- ployment or self-employment covered by social security are earning credit differently this year than they did before 1978. Social security credits are measured in units called ."quarters of coverage." A person's right to benefit is determined by the number of quarters of coverage he or she has. The required number basically depends on a person's date of birth. No one needs credit for more than 40 quarters of coverage - 10 years. .Starting in 1978, a person receives credit for one quarter of coverage for each $250 of covered annual earnings up to a maximum of 4 quarters if annual earnings are $1000 or more. This applies to beth employees and self-employed people. Before 1978, most employees earned one quarter of coverage if they were paid $50 or more in covered wages during a calendar quarter. Self-employed people earned 4 quarters of coverdge if their annual net earnings amounted to $400 or more. In addition, the $250 measure will increase each year to take account of increases in average wages in the U.S." No changes were made in the rules about how many quarters of coverage are required for benefit eligibility. More information about social security credits and how they are earned can be obtained at the Martinsburg social security office, 815 W.

Martin, III, both of the 35th delegate district of West Virginia, have attacked the so- called "Freeport Amendment" to be put before the voters of West Virginia at the November 7 general election. Both Caudie and Martin are urging the voters to defeat this amendment. The two legislators say the amendment could result in a decrease in corporate property taxes in as much as $1,268,734 in Berkeley County, some $83,592.00 in Jefferson County and $104,831.00 in Morgan County, most of which goes to education. The Freeport amendment would allow the legislature to exempt inventory and warehouse goods from property xation. ................. ;'That much to rebuildT' Building costs have increased over 5 percent a year in recent years.
