Special awards were given for Social Security Retirement Age Going Up The Social Security retirement age is going up and the effects will be felt for the In'st time this year. "Most people do not know changes were made sixteen years ago in the Social Security Amendments of 1983. The retirement age for those born in 1938 or later was raised in gradual steps from age 65 to 67: said Michael Reynolds, Social Security manager in Steubenville. "The change was part of a package of changes made by a bipartisan Congressional committee to curtail program expenses," Reynolds said. "People are living longer and are perfect attendance for 1999. -'L.1rawing: Social Security, ; benefits Those who received three month longer, creating unanticipated costs perfect attendance were Mary Lou Bingiel, Alice Clifton, Bessie Eddy, Linda Guiler, Carol Kosut, Kim Morris, Julia Lyons, Carol Morrison, Eileen Pratt, Phyliss Schoolcraft, Sina Mae Utt, Shirley Wiggins, Carmie Yukevich and Annie Bailey. Those receiving six month perfect attendance were Kim Morris and Carmie Yukevich. There was also one year perfect attendance. Those recipients were Mary Lou Bingiel, Julia Lyons, for the Social Security system." If you were born before 1938, you will still be eligible for your full Social Security retirement benefit at the age of 65 and reduced benefits as early as age 62. However those born in 1938 who retire "early" this year will fred their benefit reduced from 20 percent to 20.8 percent. Beginning in 2003, full retirement age for those born in 1938 or later will increase.
