C.--Con- gressman Bob Dole has intro- duced a bill to raise the limita- tion upon the amount of out- side income which an individ- ual may earn while receiving Social Security benefits from the present ceiling of $1,500 annually to $3,600 annually. Thousands of Americans must deplete their savings, sell their homes, and rely on rela- tives and private organizations because the present Social Se- curity benefit and earnings limitations .relegate them to a near poverty level existence," according to the Congressman. "Increased maximum benefits voted in recent years, com- bined with the present maxi- mum earnings limitations, barely permit an individual to rise above the poverty level~ The high cost of living is here now, and those presently living on fixed incomes are having great difficulty waiting for the maximum benefits to be made available. "There are many instances where mdivlduals are able to work, waut to work and jobs are available to them," Dole continued, "but they must sharply curtail their working hours since possible earnings would exceed the unrealistic earning limitations. The pre- sent law tends to destroy the incentive through which this country has achieved its great strength and discourages many elder citizens who have valu: able skills which can contri- bute materially to the econo- mic well-being of this Nation. Certainly, these citizens should be encouraged, not frustrated, in the desire to use their full capabilities. "I urge prompt passage of this legislation to remove the existing inequities and dis- criminatory practices penaliz- ing those who are entitled to the benefits which they have earned after long years of con- tribution and sacrifice," Dole declared. "We continue to dis- cuss ways and means of im- proving the lot of our elder citizens. This is one of the best ways to help those who wish to help themselves."
