How Social Security
Aids the Retarded

Harry Baltuck, manager of the
Detroit-Northwest district office,
said that the Social Security office
now has available a leaflet on "So-
cial Security and What It Means
for the Parents of a Mentally Re-
tarded Child." This leaflet is free
and available at any of the Social
Security offices.
The leaflet points out that an
increasing number of Social Secur-
ity beneficiaries who are mentally
retarded now outlive the parents
on whom they have always been
By mid-1964, the leaflet states,
at least half of the estimated 114,-
000 retarded adult beneficiaries
receiving Social Security payments
were over age 35. Some were over
age 65.
The leaflet explains that a child
may become eligible for Social Se-
curity benefits when one of his
parents receives Social Security
retirement or disability benefits,
or when one of his parents dies.
But if the child is disabled at the
time he reaches 18, his benefits
continue for as long as he is dis-
abled—which may be for life.
In many cases, Baltuck stated,
a person who has been disabled
since childhood becomes eligible
for Social Security benefits in
middle age or later when one of
his parents who has worked under
Social Security retires, becomes
disabled, or dies.
To get a free copy of the leaflet
"Social Security: What It Means
for the Parents of a Mentally Re-
tarded Child," contact the Social
Security office at 18500 Grand
River, 272-0080.

Two Active Boxers
Fight fans in London had an
opportunity recently of seeing two

Both boys appeared on the same
program. They are both from
North Africa, but are now living
in France. Michel Atlan is a feath-
erweight, while Felix Brami is a
bantamweight. Both lost to their
British opponents. It was Brami's
first defeat.
