Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 7, 1965, Mason City, Iowa Start vote on amendments to medicare WASHINGTON AP Tne Senate voted Wednesday to al low all persons covered by Social Security the option of retiring at age 60 with monthly payments at twothirds of the rate that would apply at age 65 It accepted by voice voteand with only brief debate an amendment to accomplish this offered by Sen Robert C Byrd DWVa to the Social Security health care bill Byrd said he was primarily interestedin persons in the twilightzone over age who lose their jobs and cannot find new employment Under the jaw now a worker may retire at age 62 with a monthly payment equal to 80 per cent of what would be re ceived at age 65 The Byrdamendment pro vides that if the worker retires at age 60 the payment would be at 66 23 per cent of the full rate A wife entitled to 50 per cent ofher husbands benefit at age 65 now gets 37W per cent of his payment if she elects to retire at age 62 Under the Byrd amendment she would receive only 29 per cent of his payment at age 60 The bill as it came from the House already had provided an age 60 retirement for widows with a reduced benefit Byrd estimated that 35 mil lion persons would be eligible for earlier benefits under his proposal and that 900000 would take advantage of this in the next year He said the estimated initial extra cost would be mil lion a year but that reduced payment figures had been worked out actuarially so there would be no longrun cost to the Social Security system In other words a person re tiring at 60 would receive about the same total sum based on his life expectancy as he would if he had waited until 65 Sen Russell B Long DLa floor manager for the bill ac cepted the amendment How ever he indicated he expected some difficulty in getting the House to go along with the pro posal The main provisions of the bill one of President John sons major legislative propos als would set up health care programs for 19 million Ameri cans 65 or older and boost So cial Security benefits The cost is estimated at billion yearly Most of it would be met by increased Social Se curity taxes paid by workers and employers Long said he expected 15 or 20 amendments wovild be offered to the bill before final action Passage would send it to confer ence with the House which has passed its own version of the measure But Long added there was every reason to believe that fi nal action could come by Fri day SenJohn J Williams RDel senior Republican on the Fi nance Committee which handled the this estimate might be optimistic but Republican would
